A couple of weeks back, I once again had the privilege of being a speaker at Beaver Creek Bible Camp. Nestled along the shore of Lake Winnipeg, the camp draws kids from the surrounding area, as well as others from Winnipeg and even as far south as Steinbach (where I live). Each camper comes with their own unique set of needs. I would like to share my encounter with one camper to show that King Jesus still has power over demons.
Christmas is a time for remembering. We remember a young virgin, hardly more than a child, who abandoned herself to the Lord to bear His Son before she was even married. We remember her young fiancée who obediently married her, even though he could hardly understand what was going on. We remember the Child born in a stable. We remember the angels visiting shepherds in the field. All of these images flood our hearts and minds with cherished memories. I would like to propose one more very important thing that needs to be remembered at Christmas time.
