Mosley: Lest I ever forget

December 13, 2012

Oh, God. I thank you today for the power to turn situations around. Won’t you journey with me…to the fourth chapter of Daniel? I love this chapter for two reasons. It displays the true heart of man and the unconditional love of God. It tells of King Nebuchadnezzar and his journey as he came into the full knowledge of God. He had heard a lot about the God of Daniel, he knew of his power and his wisdom yet he refused to bow down and serve him. Oh mighty King Neb came to know God the hard way.

Yarber: Are you celebrating Christmas?

December 13, 2012

Christmas is definitely in the air – especially the airways. Christmas movies are on every channel, interrupted by countless commercials showing the perfect Christmas gift.

The titles go on and on – entertaining, perhaps, but lacking in substance. Even the movies that show right winning over wrong make no mention of the real reason for the season.
