I love Christmas. Christmas is a time with family and friends, crowded malls, shopping, egg nog, Christmas plays, exchanging gifts, more crowded malls, more shopping, etc. It can drive you completely crazy but thats okay!
This morning, Max Lucado reminded me why i love this time of year. Its the time of year where everyone and i mean EVERYONE asks, thinks, talks, reflects on Jesus. Even non believers will be seeing displays of the manger or the three kings following the star. The birth of Jesus, so humble so peaceful is a story thats being told every min of this month and as a Christian, I am aware that this is an opportunity to share Christ.
Do you know someone who loves this time of year and is not a Christian? If so, pray that the Holy Spirit move you in sharing what this time of year really means to them. As followers of Christ, it is our duty to share the word of Christ to all. This time of year just makes it that much easier.
Lets the season of sharing the Word of God begin! Have a good morning – PJSLB
This is conversation my wife and i will be having very soon!
If you own an iPhone, you need to have Max Lucado’s Daily Devotional podcast as it is the perfect way to start the morning. With the podcast being only 1 min, it is short enough that you can fit it in with the hectic morning schedule and at the same time be filled with wonderful insight and encouragement from a Christian perspective on life.
In today’s devotional, Lucado focuses on “today’s problem not necessarily being tomorrow problem”. He goes on to talk about not setting yourself up for failure. Just because your dad was a drunk does not mean you will be one as well! Lucado reminds us to “…stand against the wiles of the Devil” (Ephesians 6:11). The complete verse reads as such in the bible.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Have a blessed morning everyone. May God show his favor in all that you do. -PJSLB
Found this while eating at a restaurant called ARASHI on the beautiful island of Guam. It was pinned on a board with other drawings and calling cards. It is entitled “deaf sign language devotional” and has an illustration on how to say thank you using sign language. It also has the beginning of 1 Thessalonians 5:16 which reads…
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NLT)
This was the perfect verse for the type of day I was having. Thank you lord for that!
I love seeing the word of God in plain view of the world. If you see some out there be sure to share with us for the world to see Gods Grace.
