Early Start on Christmas


Read Luke 1:1 through 2:52

Published: Sep 25, 2017

Gayle looked across the store and noticed Christmas decorations already on display. “Seriously! It’s three months until Christmas. Why can’t they wait for Thanksgiving first?” she muttered. Later while unloading her groceries she began to think about the truth of Christ—God’s promised Savior coming to the world. She remembered the message the angels proclaimed to the shepherds.

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord” (Luke 2:11).

The Jewish people yearned for the coming Messiah to deliver them from the harsh realities of Roman rule. Some false messiahs arose to attempt to win the allegiance of the people and had some success. However, they weren’t able to give people the peace and joy they desired. God sent Jesus to be born in Bethlehem, live a sinless life, die on a cross to pay for humanity’s sin, and rise from the dead.

The challenges of life cannot compare with the joy people can discover in the gift of Jesus Christ.

Challenge for Today: Rejoice in the truth that the Savior loves you no matter the challenge.

Quicklook: Luke 2:8–14


Myths of Being Single

Single adults are lonely - It is true that some single adults are lonely, but it certainly does not take being single to be lonely. The loneliest person in your hometown is not a single adult, but a married adult who is in a terrible marriage!

Single adults want to get married - Some single adults do want to marry, as would married adults if they were single! I would rather they look in a church with a ministry to single adults, however, than in the world. Chances of finding a dedicated Christian are usually higher!

Single men are irresponsible - Some are; then again, some married men are also! It does not take being single to be irresponsible. Just talk to the wives of some of the married men in your city.

More myths after the jump.....
