Commitment and Courage by Elizabeth George

Reflecting Christ During the Holidays

Reflecting Christ by Elizabeth George

The holidays are a special time for family, friends, and faith. The faith part can be difficult when you share the family table with unbelievers, but it doesn’t have to be. God calls us to love (John 15:12-13). God is love (1 John 4:8) and we are made in his image (Genesis 1:27). We are to walk as Jesus walked (1 John 2:6) and Jesus is one with God (John 1:18).

Are you excited yet? Do you understand what that means?
