We're excited to talk with Duncan Phillips of the Newsboys today - they're a part of the K-LOVE Radio Music City Christmas special on UPtv on Monday, December 9th!Here's the interview in case you missed it:
Thank K-LOVE Christmas Tour kicks off today and we got to chat with Mike Weaver of Big Daddy Weave about the tour! In case you missed our chat, here's the full interview.
For most of us, today kicks off the official beginning of the Christmas season. You can't see me, but I'm smiling just writing that! I love Christmas! I love the music, the food, the chaos of shopping for the perfect gift and the reminder of the gift that we have in Jesus.
But, there can be some challenges this time of year. One challenge is figuring out what to do with all the leftovers from yesterday's feast! Here are some great recipe ideas! Got a go-to recipe you want to share? Share it here or on our Facebook page.
Another challenge of the Christmas season is the risk we face of scams and identity theft. We can never be too careful!
And, finally, there is the challenge of making your dollar stretch! There are ways that you can avoid the traps and spend less when shopping this season. Find out how HERE.
As we begin the Christmas season, we pray that we will all have moments of wonder, make memories that we'll never forget and gain a deeper understanding of just how stunning the gift of Jesus really is.
Thanksgiving is the holiday that so often gets overlooked in our rush to move right on to Christmas, which is unfortunate, since gratitude should be more than a mere ‘thank you’, but a place in which we live as Christians. More than anyone else, as Christians, we should allow gratitude to shape who we are and how we live, for we have experienced the greatest act of benevolence the World has ever known, the gift of God’s only begotten son. We should marvel that Jesus would give his life, so that we can live ours free from the death sentence that each of us faced without the Cross. Jesus paid the debt that is impossible for us to pay.
Our response should be to live a life that reflects his love and mercy to others, a life of ‘thanksgiving’. Living in that place of gratitude, more than any other single thing, effects the way we love others. Unlimited forgiveness ought to be demonstrated with mercy toward others because it is the reflection of a right relationship with the Father. To state it another way, God’s forgiveness of our sins should motivate us to forgive those who offend us. Jesus shared a parable in Matthew 18, that is a reminder that God expects us to live that way, and never losing sight of how much we have to be thankful for makes that possible.
We should marvel that God wants us to share in his inheritance by sharing his grace, love and mercy with others, so that they may experience the love of our kind and benevolent king. Every day should be one of Thanksgiving for us, when we live in that space, we can truly live a life that honors God, and allows his love and compassion to flow through us to others.
May Psalm 100 be our guide...
Shout praises to the Lord, everyone on this earth.
Be joyful and sing as you come in to worship the Lord!
You know the Lord is God! He created us, and we belong to him; we are his people, the sheep in his pasture.
Be thankful and praise the Lord as you enter his temple.
The Lord is good! His love and faithfulness will last forever.
