Facing Down Your Adversaries

Facing Down Your Adversaries

When the Japanese were en route over the Pacific to bomb Pearl Harbor, a Japanese naval commander proclaimed to the chief officer of the fleet that Japan would soon be the greatest world power, eliminating the superpower status of the United States. The chief commander looked reflectively at his comrade and said, “I fear all we have done

Celebrate Your Recovery

You turned my wailing into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise You forever. — Psalm 30:11–12 Have you ever wondered why Celebrate Recovery is called Celebrate Recovery? Well… people usually seek help when things are bad. Which means none

Lost

Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing

The Spirit of Christmas

Now I commit you to God and to the word of His grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. I have not coveted anyone’s silver or gold or clothing.

The Best Gift

The angel that announced the Savior told the shepherds not to fear but to open their eyes and look for the good things God was doing for them and for the whole world — things that would bring great joy to everyone.

For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.

Not only did that star lead these Easterners

God Will Provide – Zechariah’s Prayer

In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly. But they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were

He Will Be Called Wonderful

He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. — Isaiah 9:6 My dictionary defines wonderful as “so unusual or magnificent that it causes wonder and amazement.” What a description of Jesus! First, Jesus was wonderful in His pre-existence. As the perfect man who was also God, He existed from all eternity. Only He is equally at home

His Name is Jesus

Jesus — Completely Human, Completely Divine

She will bring forth a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins. Jesus In the four gospels of the New Testament, it’s His most common name — used almost six hundred times. And a common name it was. Jesus is the Greek form of Joshua, Jeshua, and Jehoshua —
