"The Miracle of Christmas and The Miracle of Salvation!"

Christmas is a very special time of the year.  There is love, joy, hope, and excitement in the air.  It is a time of feverish preparation and intense anticipation.  With nearly everyone, it is a time of focus on family and friends.  It seems to be the time of year that nearly everyone believes in the mysterious and the miraculous.  Can you imagine what that first Christmas must have been like?  The angel Gabriel sent by God came to the city of Nazareth, and there he appeared before a young girl named Mary.  That appearance, a miracle in itself, set in motion the Miracle of Christmas.

Gabriel told Mary that she was favored by God and had been chosen to be the mother of His Son, the Messiah.  Mary's heart must have raced and her mind must have been confused as she tried to make sense of what she had just heard.  "Highly favored (one)".  She knew she was a simple common girl and had done nothing to deserve God's favor.  "Thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name Jesus!"  She knew that what the angel proposed was a verifiable impossibility.

"How Many Apples Are In A Seed?"

"You can count the apples on the tree, but who can count the apples in a seed?", goes the old aphorism.  So it is with the influence of a single person.  Take Edward Kimball, for example.  Never heard of him?  I'm not surprised.  Kimball was a faithful Christian who wanted to be used by God.  He was not a pastor or a missionary, but he knew that he should go and share the gospel.  Kimball was a Sunday school teacher who not only prayed for the often-rowdy boys in his class, but also sought to win each one to the Lord.  If Kimball ever felt like giving up, he never talked about it.  But, human nature being what it is, the thought must have come to him more than once.  Kimball felt especially burdened for one young man in particular, named Dwight, who worked in a Chicago shoe store.  Dwight didn't seem to understand what the gospel was about, so Kimball mustered up the courage to go and tell him about Jesus.  He went to the shoe store where Dwight was stocking shelves, and confronted him in the stock room with the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Much to Kimball's delight, Dwight responded and gave his life to Christ.  Dwight later began a preaching ministry, and became known as D. L. Moody, one of the greatest evangelists in church history!  Moody touched two continents for God, with untold thousands coming to faith in Jesus Christ!  But, the story doesn't end there..........

BIBLE TRIVIA

Here is some good information to think about and pass on.  The speaker who wrote this is unknown, but the content is true, and  an amazing answer to a common question.  This is one of the best explanations of why we can believe that the Bible is inspired and authored by our Creator Himself.  Excellent!

During a question and answer session at a recent speaking engagement, a university student asked me, "Why do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God?"

Now this is a very interesting question, and probably one of the most important questions any Christian could ask themselves.  What is so special, so unique about the Bible that Christians believe it is literally the inspired word of God?  In answering this student's question, I encouraged him to consider the following facts about the Bible.

AMEN AND AMEN

Bubba Stahl wrote this - so I have to give credit where credit is due,it spoke to me however and i wanted to share it with you

AMEN and AMEN

AMEN is a Hebrew word meaning, “This is true.” It is transliterated in several languages similar to the word Hallelujah, which is also a Hebrew word (Praise the LORD). We say AMEN, usually after something is said that we agree with during a conversation, or during a sermon. But Jesus would say it before He said something.

For example in John 3:3; “AMEN, AMEN, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” And in John 5:19, “AMEN, AMEN, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of His own accord, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.” In some Bibles this AMEN is translated Truly, Truly or Verily, Verily. But why does Jesus say it first rather than at the end like we do, and why does He AMEN Himself?
