When God sent His people into the Promised Land, the first thing they had to do was to locate and completely destroy every place of idol worship. God knows that any temptation we leave intact in our life will entice us away from pure worship to Him. Are there any “idols” that you have set up in your heart that are disrupting your true worship of God?
Christmas Past, Present and Future
All of us, to one degree or another, deal with three main areas of life. We battle with the shame of things we did in our past; we struggle to understand why certain things are happening to us in the present; and we often experience fear of the unknown about our future. The real Christmas story is about a Savior who came to give us forgiveness from our past, peace in the present, and hope for our future!
