As we approach the holiday season, and in particular the Christmas season, we know, as Christians, that the reason for the season is the work of the cross and power of the resurrection, the high cost of love that Jesus paid over 2000 years ago at Calvary.  Yet so much of what we see today is the de-CHRIST-ing and the de-CROSS-ing of the church, which ultimately leaves us powerless, with merely a form of godliness that denies the source of its power.

We live in a world where we need the manifest presence and power of God to bring about change! We need His intervention like never before! In a world of uncertainties and global challenges, we need to come back to the realization that the power of our faith lies in the work of the cross and in the resurrection of Christ.

Your donation this month will not only assist with our normal operating expenses and our annual holiday outreaches, it will also help us get out this important message as we go to press with my latest book called Born to Die That We May Live: The Work of the Cross and The Power of the Resurrection, with a special, limited edition scheduled for pre-release just in time for Christmas!

From the manger to the cross, the life of Christ fulfilled every Old Testament prophecy. Through an examination of Old Testament scripture, Born To Die unveils a beautiful portrait of our Savior and His amazing love, a love that led Him all the way to Calvary! Jesus was born to die that we might have life! He gave His life out of love, and through this display of love, our Prince of peace and our giver of hope gives us meaning, identity, and purpose.

Born to Die That We May Live is meant to impart a passion into the reader to know and to love the Word of God as it reveals very One who is the treasure embedded within and entwined throughout every word, chapter, and page of the Bible, which is Christ Himself. What better way to celebrate the Christmas season?

Thank you for caring, and have a very, merry CHRIST-mas!
