Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6 King James Version (KJV)
The atonement in Jesus Christ's blood is perfect; there isn't anything that can be added to it. It is spotless, impeccable, flawless. It is perfect as God is perfect. - A.W. Tozer

Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody
There was an important job to be done at the church that Anybody could do. But Everybody was not sure that just Anybody could do it.
Everybody was pretty sure that Somebody would do it though and truly, Somebody should have done it.
But Somebody suggested that Everybody should pray about doing it.
But Nobody realized that Everybody would forget to pray. So, Nobody prayed about it and after Nobody prayed about it, Nobody did it.
Then Everybody got angry because Somebody did not do what Anybody was capable of doing leaving Nobody to do it.
I hope that Somebody will consider doing the next job so Anybody and Everybody will happy.
Antichristmas - November 28, 2016
This is a time of year when time seems to slip by quicker than normal. The election that seemed to take forever to get here is now history and for better or worse we have a new president coming to power. Thanksgiving has also come and gone and the frenzy of merchandising that is now Christmas is upon us. By and and large we may not be, as a nation all, that thankful or all that giving.
Santa has effectively hijacked Christmas and we are the poster children for the "conspicuous consumption" that destroyed the Roman Empire. By the way, they also helped the crowds pick somebody else besides Jesus too!
Take a look at the picture below and look at the date. Not only has Santa made his way into the church property, he is being rushed upon the children even before Thanksgiving. We can't seem to wait to douse the season with the unholy waters of commercialism, and the so-called church is keeping time with the drumbeat for the anthem of antichristmas. Think about it. We have replaced the old rugged tree with a Christmas tree, and the Savior with a Santa.
Let's guard our own lives, our own homes, and our own churches against the strong currents of distraction and rest upon the security of God's Word and God's Son.
