Like an ugly and cheap Christmas sweater from a second-hand store, the world is unraveling on all fronts. Gone is the tightly-stitched patterns and hems that held together a colorful mosaic of unique and individual parts making up the whole. What remains are faded colors, missing or torn tapestry, threadbare seams and elastic necklines that have failed to bounce-back after repeated use. We are becoming pulled and yanked away from our integrity and design as children of God, and into an amoebic mass of humanity that can no longer even discern the difference between those with an x, or those with a y chromosome. So is the world today. We have spiraled down a very deep and dark path and no longer resemble the bright and shiny innocence fresh out of the loom. When God breathed life into us, He gave us the opportunity to share our gifts and point people to Him. We have miserably failed in that assignment, instead becoming sullen, downtrodden, selfish, self-centered and so “triggered” by everyone who has a different position than ours that we have lost focus on the important things in life. We are increasingly skeptical of things of God, because we, in our limited understanding, cannot comprehend and/or envision this continual convergence or events that is surely pointing to the return of Christ to make things right again. What Will It Take To Convince You that all of our lives are converging on a common path and each will be held accountable for his actions? Whatever it may be, we pray that those who do not know and cherish the person of Jesus Christ will seek Him with all urgency. Do not leave His gift under the tree out of skepticism or doubt. If you only unwrap and accept a single gift this year, make it the gift of eternity with God. Rust and moth will destroy everything else, but the incorruptible gift of life will last forever. We continue to pray for you and yours this Christmas Season. Thank you for continuing to be watchmen from all over the world as we continue to broadcast the truth of the Word of God to the ends of the earth. May God’s presence be evident and real in your hearts this Christmas. And thanks for making us your Sunday Morning Home. Be Blessed, FBC. I hope that you enjoy this as much as I did. We’ll see you here, there or in the air!!! Maranatha!!! .
