How to give Christmas back to Christ
December 25, 2012
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
A department store put a Nativity scene in one of their store windows one Christmas. As a window-shopping couple walked by, the gentleman said to his wife, “Look there! The church is trying to take over Christmas now!”
Unfortunately, many people look at Christmas just that way. They like the lights, the presents, Santa Claus, and family time, but they don’t know the true meaning and reality of Christmas. They completely miss the reason for the season… Jesus Christ!
I wonder what would happen in our hearts, our families, and our lives if each and every one of us today decided this Christmas was going to be fully dedicated to the Lord. Yes, we can have lights, presents, and Santa. But what if we made things different by focusing our families and friends on the reality of Jesus Christ?
You can make the decision to make that happen right now. Begin by simply reading the Christmas story with your family. Pray with one another, and talk about the difference Jesus has made in your life. When you let Christ take over Christmas, you’ll take the first step toward surrendering to Him your entire life.
LET CHRIST TAKE OVER CHRISTMAS BY FOCUSING YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY’S HEARTS ON HIM.

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.
