Christmas Meditation 2010

My family and I watched Planet Earth on Christmas Eve. The beauty and majesty displayed on film was awe inspiring. And I don’t mind taking delight in the works of God displayed in his world. Calvin said, “Meanwhile let us not be ashamed to take pious delight in the works of God open and manifest in this most beautiful theater." Better yet, Isaiah recorded that the angels said the whole earth is full of God’s glory (Isaiah 6:3). And the Apostle John wrote that, “All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being”(John 1:3). Who is the “him”? John said the eternal Word is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:17). How humbling is it that the one through whom all things exist would become flesh (John 1:10,14). The One who created all things that we are watching on Planet Earth, would come into this world to save sinners (1 Tim. 1:15)—simply amazing and profound beyond measure.

Bats fly with sonar in complete darkness catching bugs with stealth like accuracy; and the eternal Son of God, the designer of such creatures, came into the world to save sinners. One far outweighs the other and I get to delight in both. But to compare the two is like comparing the sun to a candle.

Billy Graham

Billy was really only joking about a donut to lure him to church.  What does it take for you?

Does God's Word being preached do it ?

Billy Graham Called Me

I got a call early Sunday morning from Billy Graham to see if we were going to have church because we were having blizzard conditions...
I told him that we were having church.  I asked him if he was coming and he said that if i had a donut for him he would come.  I told him one would be waiting for him.

You know things are getting bad in the world when you must bribe Billy Graham with a donut to come to church.

STAY tuned for PART 2
I have a picture of Billy Graham with his donut.
