  • The Many Moods Of Christmas

    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on Jan 2, 2018

    Everyone is so concerned about "Merry Christmas" verses "Happy Holidays". What about the context of either saying? Are you going through a good time in life? Then it is Merry but if you're going through a rough patch it can feel like salt in a wound.

    Please open your Bibles to Luke 2:8-20 which we will read in a few minutes. In this part of the narrative of the Christmas story we read of the encounter of the angels with the shepherds on the night of the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. With that in mind lets go ahead and read Luke more

    based on 4 ratings

    "No Room" was a declaration by God of what Jesus would experience in His ministry. In fact there are only two places where room will be made for Jesus. Do you know what they are?

    There was a Christmas program at a church and a 7-year-old boy was chosen to be the innkeeper. When Joseph and Mary approached looking for shelter his line was to simply say “I’m sorry… but we have no room.” But being a good 7-year-old boy that didn’t seem quite right. He looked at Mary and more

    As we celebrate “God With Us”, will we commit to “be there” for Him?

  • Jesus Is The Reason For The Season

    Contributed by Dana Chau on Sep 8, 2001
    based on 130 ratings

    The difference Jesus Christ makes at Christmas and in your life.

    I heard repeatedly on the radio this week that depression is very common during the Christmas holiday.

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 25, 2018

    For the real message of Christmas is the one we used to see plastered over every end-zone: God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten son, that we might not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Christmas 2018 “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the more
