    Christmas is all about Good News. But it’s not the good news of special gifts. It’s not the good news of a big meal. It’s not even the good news of spending time with friends and family. Christmas is about the Good News of God’s love.

    During this Christmas season, you’ll hear one word more than any other. It’s not “merry,” “tree,” “Santa,” or even — unfortunately — “Jesus.” It’s “gift.” By the end of November — and sometimes even before then — we begin a frantic dash to find the right gift for everyone on our list. The word “gift” consumes us for a month.

  • God Blesses Us So We Can Bless Others

    No one sacrificed like the early church. In Acts 2:44-45, the Bible says, “All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need” (NIV). These early Christians didn’t just give their money. They were generous with everything they had. You could say they were radically generous.

    If you give God your time, he multiplies it. If you give him your money or energy, he multiplies that, too. As I’ve mentioned here before, it’s like planting seeds. Farmers know that seeds must be sacrificed by being buried in the ground; they must be given away to do any good.

    There are three things you can do with your life: You can waste it, you can spend it, or you can invest it. The best use of your life is to invest it in something that will last longer than your time on Earth.

    God says that you are a priest. Depending on your background, that may be scary or confusing. Peter is saying that the two benefits that priests have are now available to everyone who is a believer.

  • Change Requires Confession

    12.15.17
    12.15.17

    God allows a crisis to get our attention, and then he uses the crisis to develop our character. One thing that signals we’re changing for the better is when we confess that we’re the problem. We stop blaming other people and admit, “I am the problem with my life.” Until we understand this, there can be no major change in our lives. This is the breakthrough God knows we need.

    Hope matters. In a world that often looks bleak, we need to understand that God’s best is yet to come. We find five reasons in 1 Peter 1 why we can have hope no matter what’s going on in our lives. I’ve given you the first three of those reasons in recent devotionals.

    It’s easy to look around the world and not see any reason for hope. But God’s Word is clear: We have real reasons for hope. The first chapter of 1 Peter gives us five of those reasons. I’ve described two of them the last few days in these devotionals.
