New Blog Post: “December is a Prime Time for Ministry”

I enjoy December.  The season of Advent.  The beginning of the new Christian Year.  The anticipation of the coming of our Lord.  Christmas is a very important season.  First of all, we remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus—God in the flesh.  Need I say more?  But I will!  December is a prime time for ministry.  Most people are open to the Baby Jesus.  They may not yet know he’s the Son of God, the Messiah, the Savior of the World, the King of the universe.  But they know there’s something important about him.  They feel a sense of peace, joy and hope when they hear his story and sing his songs.  Christmas provides a golden opportunity for ministry that only comes once or twice a year.  Many people will not attend a worship service during the year, but they will attend a Christmas program, where they will sing spiritual songs and hear the gospel told in the form of the “Christmas Story.”  So let’s not miss the opportunity to invite people to hear about the birth of Jesus.
