Lately we have been seeking to answer the question of how we walk in love.  We have discussed what agape love looks like.  We talked about loving in deed and in truth.  In this post we are going to look at a very familiar story to see what love looks like in practice.

Jesus Christ is the light of the world.  He is the Source and Revelation of all that is true.  When we observe Him we see God as He truly is.  When we look at Jesus we also see man as God intended him to be.  The question is, how do we walk in the light we have in Christ?

The Day That Changed Everything 3

Everything changed the day Jesus Christ was born as a babe in Bethlehem.  One of the things that changed was our view of God.  The God enshrouded in the mystery of history stepped into our world and introduced Himself to us in the Person of His Son.  Our view of God would never be the same as a result.

The Day That Changed Everything 2

The birth of Jesus Christ is more than just a cute story to be thought on and celebrated at Christmas time.  It was literally the day that changed everything.  Do you realize that event reached as far as the kingdoms of this world?

The Day That Changed Everything

I absolutely love this time of year.  I find the birth of Jesus Christ to be absolutely fascinating.  The thought that God took upon Himself flesh and dwelt among us simply staggers the imagination.  For many, however, Christmas merely conjures up sentimental thoughts of a young mother and her child on a quiet night in less than perfect circumstances.  While that is certainly part of the story, it is so much more than that.  The day Christ was born was the day that changed everything.

We Have Not Learned Christ

It is appalling to think how few “Christians” really understand what the Christian life is all about.  Having been told that it is all about having your sins forgiven so you can go to Heaven when you die, they pretty much live like the rest of the world on any given day except Sunday.  The apostle Paul directly challenges that way of doing life.
