Some people complain about Mondays. I probably have also. But not this Monday.
Yesterday was the first of the Christmas sermons and 5 people crossed the line of faith to place their trust in Jesus alone for eternal life! AND we also had 3 baptized, 1 who just recently was saved at Grace! It is such a blessing to be a part of God’s activity. Yesterday, I was really going for 2 Cor 5:21 in the sermon, when I came across vs 20 that best summarized the point that we are invited to be participants in the Christmas Story, not merely onlookers.
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
God makes his appeal to lost people through us! Let’s not simply observe Christmas, let’s participate. Be an ambassador for Christ!
Flagstaff is under a Blizzard warning right now. Snow is falling big time and schools have already cancelled for Tuesday. NAU/CCC have also called off finals for today. A blessing for some, I’m guessing. Also, we’re closing the church office for the remainder of today, and probably tomorrow also.
As we all enjoy the snow and the adjusted schedule that goes along with it, let’s be careful, and thankful!
