What We Need To Do As Followers Of Jesus Christ

It was a glorious day for my old friend. He was breathless as he informed me his life was now in the Hands of Jesus. We had been having some interesting conversations, but it was a large evangelical event that finally prompted him to stand up and accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior. We hugged and his embrace was strong and genuine. He had surrendered to Jesus. “What do I do now?” he asked. So, I kiddingly asked him if he didn’t pick up the manual from the evangelical event before presenting him with my favorite study Bible....

Preparing For Advent

Preparing for Advent means different things to different Christians. But for too many, it is not something that means anything. Some Christians believe Advent is the time to prepare for Christ’s birth. Are they supposed to prepare… to prepare the celebration? Advent actually means the second coming. It is the season to celebrate not just Jesus’ birthday, but rather the coming of the Savior.  It is not a time to prepare for Christmas. It is a four-week long celebration that culminates on Christmas Day. Preparing for Advent involves you, the person, and how you can honor the Lord throughout...
