Christmas 2018: What Do You Believe...

In a day or so, you will be communicating with or traveling towards your loved ones, your family.

We celebrate Christmas across the globe and billions of people give our time and our resources to those who are in need.  Why?
"She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." - Matthew 1:21
When you think about life and the journey it takes you on, there are so many "What if's" that could have made it so different.  Your history and the decisions that your family made and that you have made in life, is all before you.

Starting with "What do you believe"?

Flash back in your life to your first ten years.  Where were you?  What did you and your family do around Christmas?  Are you still doing some or all of those same activities and do you have the same beliefs?

As you touch those you wish to share time with this Christmas, think back to where your journey started.  What have you accomplished since then?  How many others are you with now, to celebrate?

All of us have been born with the ability to believe.  The choices you have made in life so far and the choices ahead, will navigate your particular path in life.

Those decisions, may not have been the right ones at the time.  Perhaps human emotion overwhelmed you at the moment and now you wish you could reverse it and go back in time.

You can't alter history and the "Trust Decisions" you have already made in your life so far.  Yet you can be forgiven.  Asking for forgiveness is possible for everyone.  You can be saved from your sins and your own behavior, just by believing.

Are you a Daughter or Son?  A Sister or Brother? A Wife or Husband?  A Mother or Father?  A Cousin?  A best friend or colleague?

And for all of those "Who Serve" and are too many miles away from your loved ones right now, we are thinking of you and praying for your safe return.  You know who you are.

You most likely have someone else you care about and who you can pray for or with, this Christmas season.  Take a few minutes now, and do this...
