Title:  Our Greatest Resource

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK…

A friend of mine gave a Bible to someone who was going through a difficult time.  The person was in real need, and their life had been one disaster after the other, but in all that time there was never any concrete attempt to give their life to God and follow him.  As my friend gave a Bible to this person, and encouraged him to read it, he suggested that he might start by reading the Christmas story, since it was that time of year.

The man looked at him with real surprise and said: “You mean the Christmas story is in the Bible?” For those of us who know what the Christmas story is and have read and heard the Christmas story many times from scripture, it seems incredible that someone would not know something that basic.  But there is a growing ignorance of spiritual things in our land as we attempt to separate our lives from the any contact with, or reference to, God.
