A CHILL IN THE AIR

Winter has officially arrived in my neck of the woods with the snow filled skies opening on our “new” old house.  I love the frosty, fluffy, white stuff as long as I don’t have to go anywhere.  The fresh blanket has covered the darkened earth – the sun casts diamonds here and there and the change of seasons begins.

The icy grip of the world has also covered many churches, causing some to accommodate  politically correctness or those wanting only to feel good. We must be on guard to make sure that the church is faithfully following God’s Word.

Many folks have a difficult time with some of the concepts and teachings of the Bible. For example, no one likes to hear about their sin. The idea of a world flood is unimaginable. It’s incomprehensible that a virgin gave birth. It’s impossible for a man to return to life after suffering a horrendous death.

As we reflect on the birth of the Savior, let’s remember how important the Bible is to us. The Old Testament is filled with stories of ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances – God’s covenant with man to send a Savior – And how God works everything for our good. 

In the New Testament we receive the fulfillment of the ancient prophesies, beginning in a little town called Bethlehem.  It reveals the love of God for all humanity, giving everlasting life to those who  believe and trust in Him.

Lord, I’m grateful for a church that remains based in your Holy Word. Each passage takes on new meaning in all of my circumstances. Thank you for inspiring men with your Holy Spirit, keeping your words alive and the lines of communication open to you.  As the shepherds approached Bethlehem, their hearts must have jumped for joy as they bowed to the King of Kings – Jesus, the Messiah.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. We have been going through Romans since August at our church verse-by-verse. Pastor indicated he received some feedback while going through the first 3 chapters about what he labeled “The Problem ” ~ our sinful nature. However, he did not flinch and called sin for what it is~ death. He has no desire to tickle our ears.
