“This Child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many…”  (Luke 2:34)

Revolutions are always messy. Ever wonder why the PRINCE OF PEACE came and died for the sins of the world and still there is much turmoil and lack of PEACE in the world? That’s because He did not come to bring unconditional PEACE. It was a specific type of PEACE that He offered — and not a utopian, world-wide, political PEACE. His PEACE is only for those who are willing to make PEACE with God.

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth PEACE to men on whom His favor rests.”
(Luke 2:14)

“PEACE I leave with you; My PEACE I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.” (John 14:27)

Promoting or pursuing any kind of PEACE is good — but the PEACE Jesus is talking about is the kind of PEACE we must primarily labor for and lead people to — not a temporal, passing PEACE, but an eternal, unshakable PEACE.

“Blessed are the PEACEmakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” (Matthew 5:9)


Here’s a very short video I made based on John 1:1 and the glory of the Incarnation.
My little Christmas gift to you.

HUMANISM= the ultimate selfie.
THE INCARNATION = the ultimate photobomb.

Dude, today is the day!  Because of His Incarnation, you have the grace to actually change the momentum of your life!

Today…because He lives in you (“Christ in you, the hope of glory!”), you can choose to forgive and not hold onto bitterness.  Today, you can choose, by His over-the-top Grace, to say no to those sins that have seemed to rule you.  Today, you can walk in freedom and newness and victory.

The key is to just take this day one moment at a time…

You have Grace for the next moment.  And the next.  And the next.  And as you respond, minute by minute, to this Grace, you will begin to see a new momentum of healing and light breaking forth in your day and your life!

This is very do-able! His Blood and His indwelling Spirit have made a way!  Dare to hope once again that His Word is true and His Power is great and His Grace is enough!  YEEEEEHAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
