“It’s just a small sin… it’s no big deal!” We are so quick to convince ourselves that God is willing to tolerate our sin, as long as we are still going to church, giving some money, and doing religious things. But even the smallest amount of known sin in our lives contaminates our entire relationship with God, just as a small amount of poison contaminates an entire glass of water. Are there areas of disobedience in your life that you have been tolerating? Bring them to God today!
Seeing Christ in the Songs of Christmas
One way we always know the Christmas season is here is by the songs on the radio. Around Thanksgiving, radio stations begin playing holiday tunes — some of them around the clock. Some Christmas songs just talk about presents and snow and Santa, but other carols have their origins in the Christian faith and speak boldly to the real reason for the season. In this series, we use Christmas songs as our backdrop to explore the wonderful, amazing and history-shaking birth of Christ — what it meant then and what it still means for us today.
