Like all living things, the Christian too begins life as a spiritual babe. As a baby craves nourishment (and is very vocal about that craving), we too are to bring a powerful hunger to the Word of God through which we grow and mature.
When we come to Christ we are changed, and receive a new identity from God. It is from this new identity that we are to live and move and have our being. This morning we look at this new identity and reflect on
It is no secret that we live in a world rife with conflict. However, no conflict rages with the intensity, nor has the most at stake, than the conflict that rages within each of us. The old man will not go quietly into the night, but has declared war against our souls, and by extension, war on our marriages, our families, our communities.
We all know the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the original Grinch and miserly counting house owner who spent his life on himself. One Christmas he has a visit from an old friend who warns Scrooge that he is on a dangerous path, one that will inevitably lead him to a dark ending.
Visited by three spirits from the past, present and future, Scrooge begins to see how life is meant to be lived for and in fellowship with others, and a great change takes place.
Using this story as a launch pad, we will look at several Bible characters whose lives intersected with the Christ-child, and the outcomes of that encounter.
Join us each Sunday for a fun and life-changing experience, as we celebrate the birth of the one whose life and death and resurrection shapes our lives even today.
