II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

What's a Savior?

Wow! Only 13 days till Christmas! How time flies! Before we know it, we'll be celebrating the new year 2006. My heart is a little heavy as I write this tonight...because of all the unhappiness that I see around me. It is more common these days to hear people complain about Christmas than it is to hear them give thanks or be excited. Now, I'll admit, celebrating and excitement come natural to me. I can get excited about just about anything....but this is one of those times (Christmas) that every living soul should be EXCITED and full of cheer. I realize we all have our "situations and circumstances" whatever they may be...too little money, the loss of a loved one, too little time, and on and on. But, what is all of that compared to the birth of our Savior? Savior is a term used so common-placely...but do you know what it really means that Jesus is our Savior? Well, here is Webster's definition of Savior: "One who saves from destruction and danger. Specifically: Jesus!" Wow! This tiny child was born into this earth with one mission---to die for us...To be our Savior from all the destruction and danger that this world holds. I hope that you will recognize that this is your reason to celebrate this "Christ"mas! It's the only reason you need to have a smile on your face this season! I love you all and hope that this made you stop for a second and remember what this is really all about!
