In my younger years I didn't like all the trappings of Christmas. In fact, I wasn't really keen about the holiday at all. We should celebrate Easter, not Christmas, I thought. I'm glad I'm past that. Today we had a great crowd in the morning service and another real good crowd at the Candlelight Service. In both, I got the opportunity to present the Gospel to folks who don't normally darken the doors. I'm still in the afterglow of two services where Christ was honored and the Gospel was presented. Did it get through to nominal Christians? I have no idea. That's not my job. I just pray that the Holy Spirit will work. And I am so thankful for opportunities. Lord, please give me the passion and the wisdom to seize whatever opportunities that come my way to honor You and to share the Gospel. And help me make opportunities as well.
