The children did a fantastic job with the Christmas Musical on Sunday. We have some real talent in our church. God has blessed us so. I thank the Lord for the adults we have who work with our children from the nursery through the teen years. Look one up this week and thank them for the love and time they give to our families in nurturing the talents and gifts of our children.
There are so many events to attend to make your Christmas like none other. Tonight there are going to be several go around to shut-ins and nursing homes to give a little encouragement to our senior adults. I want to encourage you to come and join in with our church to spread the love of Christ. We are meeting at 6:45 in the Family Life Center.
We have two more Advent Sundays left. I hear a special quartet will be coming again on Christmas Sunday. Many exciting things have been happening in our services. Don’t miss a beat. God is doing a mighty work in our church. Also, a week from tonight, there will be a Christmas concert and artists drawing a mural throughout the service. Let’s not forget our Christmas Eve Service. We will again have two choices (4:30 or 6:00pm) to make it more convenient for friends and family.
Augustine was once accosted by a heathen who showed him his idol and said, “Here is my god; where is thine?” Augustine replied, “I cannot show you my God; not because there is no God to show but because you have no eyes to see Him.”
Pray for those around you to have eyes to see the meaning of Christmas. God still helps wise men find Him when they seek with their whole heart. There are many opportunities to invite others to an event this Christmas season. Pray for them to have eyes that seek a Savior and then go out and invite. God has been preparing the soil for a long time, what are you waiting for?
Have a blessed day today as you proclaim the Name of Jesus and live out the life He has given you.
Joy in Jesus!
PS. Today is 12/12/12. Spend some time praying at 12pm today for an invite opportunity. I know, invite 12 friends to church this Sunday, we’ll make room for all your friends…. I will try to be done by 12. You get the picture…
