Christ-mas time again.

Ok, so what does that mean? To some it means rushing to the store at the last minute for that last minute gift. Others it means buying all year round to keep from getting in debt all at once. To some it means spending time with family and loving them that time of year. I have heard it said that "I will be glad when Christmas is over". I bet if God had thought that, then we would be some bad shape right now. Good thing He does not want to rush through a time we choose to focus on His Son. Jesus' 1st five words in John 15:22 were "If I had not come". Just think if He had not come as a baby, but also as the most powerful King the earth has ever known. I sure am glad He did and don't you think this "I want this, I want that" attitude really puts a damper on God's Spirit? Think about it, Christmas is about everything else but Christ! The very ONE who brought us life!
I hope we can change our focus to the ONLY thing that matters.

Duty of man

What is the whole duty of man? Where do we get this answer from? After searching scriptures I came across Ecclesiastes 12:13. This says Now all has been heard, here is the conclusion of the matter. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. This being the case keeping God's commands is not cause for salvation, but the effect of it and our obedience to Him.

What a great thought. Alot of people think that we as humanity have no reason for existence. Well here is proof from Almighty God Himself!
