That First Holy Night

Oh, what a night it must have been that first Christmas, the wonder and the awe that must have filled the air.  I can only imagine the hush of the wind and the stillness of the night.  I imagine for the shepherds the night began as any other night.  I can see the shepherds as…

“Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God ” (Acts 7:56). One of my favorite passages in all scripture is the story of Stephen in Acts, chapter 7. I want to be like Stephen. I pray that God would grow me into a disciple like Stephen.…

“Why can’t God be fair?” That question just makes me cringe, but it’s a question that I hear so often and I remember when my Pastor said something about this very same question. He said something that upon first hearing makes sense and makes you say, “Oh, yeah, thank goodness!” But when you think about…
