Advent-ure 2017: Let's Worship Jesus

Written by Bob Crittendon

For the last few years, I have composed a series for Advent that I have entitled: 25: A Christmas Advent-ure.  This year, I want to focus on the importance of allowing the component of worship to enhance your celebration of Christmas.  I have listed 25 different Scripture verses in four overall categories: Prophecy, Personality, Promises, and Performance.

The holiday season is upon us.  A time for fun, fruitcake and family - our lovely relatives. Family ties form in many ways, whether by blood, marriage, adoption or the bond of life experiences such as military service, our college years or maybe a life-long friend.  While many of us light up at the thought of spending hours drinking hot chocolate and ogling old family photos, others of us become anxious at the idea of being around family members.

Defending Our Rights

Written by Sam Whatley

Years ago, a construction foreman lost his job because he would not substitute cheaper materials for the ones called for in the blueprint. The project manager was cutting corners to pad the owner’s pocket. The foreman did not challenge the company in court. He lost his income, but gained a reputation for being honest. He forgave the one who persecuted him.

The Best Gift Ever

Written by Kemi Searcy

Years ago I went to a local mall on an errand, when a beautiful, rich, pink, name-brand dress captured my attention. I immediately could see one of my daughters in it. She will really look so gorgeous in this I thought! Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough money on me. I returned weeks later to purchase the dress, only to find it was sold out. I had to special order it and by the time I got the outfit, I had not only paid for the exorbitant cost of the name-brand dress, but also the cost of shipping. Yet, when I anticipated her joy as I gave it to her at Christmas, the cost seemed worth it.

RRJ:  You grew up knowing who Jesus was, but as a teen you say you saw Him in a different light.  What would you say brought you to this awareness?

 

Dr. Trumbull:  Although I knew about Jesus, I didn’t know him personally.  In high school, I attended a summer camp with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and heard the late Dallas Cowboys Football Coach Tom Landry speak about his relationship with Christ.  It was then that I realized my sinful nature and my need for a Savior.

    Sipping Saltwater

    by Steve Hoppe

     

    Is there any sin we commit more but admit less than the sin of idolatry? As people who have knowingly and willingly deserted the one true God, we turn our hearts this way and that to find the satisfaction we are meant to find in him alone. We try first one thing and then the other yet never find our thirst assuaged. It is not until we rest in Him that we find true rest. It is not until we are satisfied in him that we find true satisfaction. Idolatry is the curse of all mankind.
