Pastor Tim's Message This Sunday -

Making This Christmas Merry 

Making This_Christmas_Merry

Here we go again! Your refrigerator is still full of leftover food from Thanksgiving, and the yard is still full of leftover leaves fallen from the trees – but its time for Christmas! Just think – its time to put up the decorations, trim the tree, shop for the presents, go to all the parties, and try to fit everything into less time than is humanly possible!

According to song, it may be “the most wonderful time of the year,” but the older I get, it seems the harder it becomes to really enjoy the Christmas season. It’s all too easy for the busy-ness to get in the way of the blessings.

It’s not yet December, but with Thanksgiving now history, if we plan properly and carefully guard our life, we can avoid turning this Christmas season into a holiday disaster!

Let’s first keep the right focus as we begin this season. In Matthew 1:21 we read the command given to Joseph regarding his espoused wife Mary. The angel of the Lord told him that “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” This is the time of year we celebrate the birth of the One who saves each of us from our sin. That is good news that should make us merry!

Do you really want this to be a Merry Christmas? Then join us at Central Assembly this Sunday, as we share some key ingredients for truly “Making This Christmas Merry!” Invite your friends, and come prepared to begin the Christmas season the best way possible!

December Wednesday nights at Central House of Prayer - 

“Christmas Character”

Christmas Character
A person’s character can be defined as the sum of his or her disposition, thoughts, intentions, desires, and actions. It is the strength of moral fiber. A.W. Tozer describes character as “the excellence of moral beings.” As the excellence of gold is its purity and the excellence of art is its beauty, so the excellence of man is his character.

People of character are noted for their honesty, ethics, and charity. Descriptions such as “a man of principle” and “a woman of integrity” are assertions of character. A lack of character is moral deficiency, and persons lacking character tend to behave dishonestly, unethically, and uncharitably.

The narratives of the Christmas story give ample evidence for us of the actions of people of character. Over the coming Wednesday evenings in Central House of Prayer, we want to share with you just what it takes to be a person of character in a teaching we are calling “Christmas Character.” Don’t miss it!
