It's that time of year again—Christmas is in the air. Snow flying in Alaska, jingle bells heard on the street corners, bright-colored lights appearing on rooftops and peppermint chocolate chip shakes at Chick-fil-A all point to the most wonderful time of the year.
Why is it so wonderful? What do we really celebrate? With the hustle and bustle of the season, we can often run ragged and end up missing the mystery of Christmas, the birth of Jesus. With the advent of this beautiful season, I wanted to offer a few thoughts on keeping Christ in Christmas and pondering the meaning of His birth. More than just a historical event, the arrival of Jesus on the earth was the first step toward atonement, redemption and resurrection. He was "God made flesh", the true hope of the world. If I'm for Christmas, it's only because I'm for Christ.

"Giving thanks makes you God-like and makes God like you."
Thought Behind the Quote:
The Bible says, "In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." Have you ever found yourself wondering what the will of God is for your life? One thing is for sure, every time you give thanks you are doing God's will. When you do God's will, you are the most like Him. When we are the most like God, He is pleased. Be God-like today...Give thanks and know that as you do, God is pleased and likes you for it. -Keith A. Craft
I am sure that in the early days of his walk with Christ, Paul endured terrible
times. And, like most of us, he probably hoped that if he just trusted the Lord
enough, he would be protected from all trouble.
The first time Paul was thrown into jail, for example, he might have cried out
for deliverance: “Lord, open these prison doors. Get me out of here for the
sake of the gospel!” Likewise, his first shipwreck probably tested his faith
severely. And his first beating might have caused him to question God’s
ability to keep His word: “Lord, You promised to protect me. I don't
understand why I'm enduring this horrible trial.”
