The birthday of the King
It’s Christmas! I hope you are enjoying some special times of celebration with family, friends and fellow believers. If so, make the most of it and lift up Jesus.
All of us have had our challenges this year. Some are painfully reminded of those difficult days when they look at the empty seat at the Christmas dinner table. I pray that you will experience God’s healing power over sorrow as you read 2 Corinthians 12:9 and the surrounding scriptures.
If you are reading this on your new smart phone, tablet or computer, please click here to be reminded that God has given us the tools we have to glorify Him and proclaim the message of His Son’s life, death and resurrection to the whole world. Our gifts to international missions through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO) will go a long way toward accomplishing that goal.
Please continue to give sacrificially, generously, willingly, passionately and radically to the LMCO. Our missionary partners are counting on it!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
