I hope you really enjoyed your Christmas yesterday, whether it was with family or friends. I hope you had a good opportunity to spend some time reflecting on the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who makes salvation possible. As usual, there was much information written about Christmas. Here are a few of my favorite blogs or news feeds that I read the past couple of days.
- A Christmas Story by Kevin DeYoung. If you want a good summary of beginning to end of the Christmas story, read this post.
- He Came...You're Free by Tullian Tchividjian. I really appreciated his statement, "Christmas is God's answer to the slavery of self-salvation." Amen!
- "And Them That Mourn" -- Celebrating Christmas in the Face of Grief and Death by Albert Mohler. Once again, Mohler writes provocatively, making me think about what I would rather ignore. Is Christmas for those that mourn?
- Is Santa Clause Real? I posted this last Christmas and still get a good laugh out of it when I read it. You will as well.
