How to maintain the right focus this Christmas
December 7, 2012
I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.
2 Timothy 1:5
I’m so thankful that I had parents who knew what Christmas was all about. Every Christmas Eve, before we opened any gifts, we would first open the Word of God and have a family devotional. That’s how I learned the true meaning of Christmas.
Many parents today don’t realize the powerful influence they have on their children. Studies show that in the formative years of a child’s life, he or she has no greater influence than that of a parent. How you act and what you hold important is going to form the way your kids think. And this influence is only for a limited time.
So as we begin the season of Advent, I want to challenge you and your family to make sure you give Christ preeminence in your hearts and your home. I hope you set aside time to learn about Him together and praise Him through song.
You are the window through which your kids will see the world. Be one that reflects Christ, and lead your children in the everlasting way!
PARENTS, TEACH YOUR CHILDREN THE WORD OF GOD. LEAD THEM TO THE TRUTH AND ALLOW GOD’S SPIRIT TO IGNITE FAITH IN THEIR LIVES.

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
