We're familiar with the legend of Santa Claus. Some Christians dislike him, saying he distracts us from the true meaning of Christmas. But getting to know the real St Nick actually makes the holiday more meaningful!
Yesterday we remembered those who serve our country. Let us also remember those who serve our Kingdom. William Tyndale gave his life translating the Bible into English. We owe him more than we can imagine!
We worship Jesus comfortably in America. But that doesn't mean our faith is always strong. The world strangles it and tries to choke the life out of it! We need fresh inspiration from a "cloud of witnesses" to help us stay faithful.
Skeptics ask, "How can God exist when there is so much pain and suffering?" This is a tough question! Why does Jesus let Christians suffer for their witness? I will answer this question over the next three weeks.
For most, St Patrick's Day is an excuse to wear green and drink beer. But did you know there was a heroic Christian named Patrick? He gave his life evangelizing the Irish. We honor his memory when we support Christians on the front lines today.
