We were created to glorify God with every thought, every word and every action. But our sin has caused us to glorify other things more than we glorify God. As a result, we have lost peace with God, which robs us of peace within, which destroys our peace with others. That baby in the manger came to restore this broken peace with God so that we could once again have peace within and peace with others. and to give us a new heart that would desire to glorify Him above everything else.

Becoming Bold Followers of Jesus
Nowhere in the Bible do we ever see Jesus asking anyone to “become a Christian.” Instead, He asked people to “follow Him,” and there is a world of difference! Jesus never made it easy for people to follow Him. In fact, He drove the crowds away by telling them they had to be willing to give up everything first. Today we’ve replaced those demands of our Lord with easy statements like, “Invite Jesus into your heart,” or “Sign a church card.” It is our desire to go from simply being Christians to being bold followers of Jesus Christ; surrendering all and following Him wherever He leads!
