One Gift, Many Blessings

Posted by Steve Glenn on

Thanks be to God for His gift that is too wonderful for words. — 2 Corinthians 9:15 A few years ago I read the script of a sermon that Rick Warren delivered to his congregation. It was entitled God’s Christmas Gift To You. Some of those thoughts are included below. Have you ever...

Who Would Imagine A King?

Posted by Valerie Williams on

One of my favorite songs this time of year is Who Would Imagine A King. It just floods my soul with images of Mary, Joseph, Jesus, and all that surrounded them. In the most unexpected of ways, hope was born, love came down, and peace was ushered in. The peace that passes understanding. Not just...

Expectation Versus Reality

Posted by Kaitlyn Bray on

Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. — Isaiah 9:7 He...

When expectation and reality do not match, we often have a strong response. We are elated when the car repair bill is far less than estimated, and just as easily frustrated when a home appliance goes on the fritz. The longer we live, our expectations become more deeply rooted. Imagine how...

King on the Heart Throne

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

It can be easy to miss the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In John 6:1—13, Jesus fed thousands of people with only five small loaves and two fish. He provided another in a long series of tangible signs that he was the one who had been prophesied about for centuries, the conquering king who would...

King At All Times

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Jesus was not the kind of king the Jews were expecting as they waited for the Messiah. They wanted an earthly king, but Jesus came to be King of our hearts. “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be...

Not What I Wanted

Posted by Joe Paris on

The Christmas of 1988, my parents and I went to a party with some friends from the neighborhood. After a nice dinner together, it was time to open the presents. The toy of choice that year for young boys was a Transformer. If you aren’t familiar with the original Transformers, then I am...

Come to Me

Posted by Emily Pickrell on

As a mother of three young children, I often look into their lives and can see pictures of God, set up in the very nature and design of the family relationship between mother and child. If I am gone for any length of time, the moment my foot lands in the door, I am greeted with joy. My oldest...

Two Kinds of Sorrow

Posted by Nolan Jones III on

Thanksgiving is over, and Christmas is less than three weeks away. Signs of Christmas are all around us: Christmas music, movies, decorations and sales. It’s that time of year when everyone is in the Christmas spirit, or at least they’re pretending to be. Unfortunately, I believe...

Hope in the Holidays

Posted by Todd Archer on

The holiday season is now in full swing. Christmas music is on nearly every radio station 24/7, and the TV shows are all decked out in holiday colors. The children are all giddy with ideas of what Santa will bring them on Christmas day. Pumpkin spice is flowing from the coffee shops, and stoves...
