Who needs another tacky sweater or a way to watch video on a 2″ nano screen?
This Christmas, my family will worship Christ, not Capitalism.
The stores and merchants will just have to do without our annual spending spree.
Some family or village in Africa will get goats and chickens instead.
Jesus gave his life to us not his money. Do him proud!
Try giving life and hope to somebody this Christmas instead of bling and hoopla!

Christian Blogs at e4God.com exist to shine a light in the world.
Books are good, and the Bible is wonderful, but chances are there is somebody near you in your life now that is “Reading” your life and your daily actions. Is there a story there that points toward God?
Each of us is a light that may attract others to the Lord of All. How we “shine” is through the story of our lives. Our testimony is our story of how God works.
Do you have a story to tell that reveals how God works? Share!

The best kind of Christian Blogs are Testimonies.
As believers, we are supposed to be IN the world, but not OF the world.
What does this mean? It means we should not be far away in monasteries or removed from the day to day struggles of life. We should have the same issues other people have.
BUT… We should look different, act different, handle our challenges in a different way.
Sharing 0ur own story, our process, about who we are, what we have gone through, and how we respond to it is the most powerful thing we can do. This is our testimony. As Christ lives in us, we become the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIGHT for others. We become gates into the new city. Others come to faith first through being attracted to us. Then, they want to know what we have that others don’t. We point them to Christ and the Holy Spirit does the rest….
Yes, we need to know the word, and we need to be ready in season and out to share with others about the Lord. BUT FIRST - we need to BE REAL.
Christ was a person who was AMONG the PEOPLE. And he lived out loud. The apostles learned to tell first person stories about who they used to be, and who they became in the LORD.
ORDINARY MEN AND WOMEN, transformed by the living Christ, telling our stories, will do more for the kingdom than any streetcorner preaching or great sermons or memorized verses.
Along those lines, I recently met a blogger who has a fantastic testimony and a heart that follows hard after Jesus.
Please allow me to introduce you to Will McCullough. Will is a man’s man who is now the Lord’s man. As a Marine, he learned about fighting and winning. Now he is fighting and winning a new battle. He is being trained up by the Holy Spirit and fashioned into a new kind of warrior.
Please read his story at http://pulledthroughthenarrowdoor.blogspot.com and drop him a word of encouragement. BUT… no platitiudes… The WORD Gives LIFE and so we want to give life to Will and not empty recitations of verses that “ShouldaCouldAughta” mean something.
