Make Your Mark on 2017
Jon Burgess

We all should have our "Mount of Olives" moment when and where we daily commune with God. All of us need a daily escape into God. We also need a time to get a fresh "Godly" perspective. We should always return to and revisit our spiritual disciplines. Our spiritual disciplines should be stewardship, community, fasting and prayer. (W1701)

Mary's Response
Jon Burgess

Have a very "Mary" Christmas! The Virgin Mary, though completely surprised and disrupted by God's plans for her, surrendered everything to God and served Him obediently. Surrender your day to God! Have a very "messy" Christmas! Becoming a Christian will not make you immune to trouble. In fact, as a Christian, you will be faced with "messy" situations that will challenge you! Seize the day! (W1652)

The Shepherd's Response
Jon Burgess

When Jesus was born it was a sign that the uninitiated were now included, the unconvinced were now convicted and the uninterested were now involved. God will meet you everywhere Ė even in your everyday pain and trouble. The world is looking for authentic Christians not perfect Christians. God wants to use you! (W1651)

The King's Response
Aaron Cordeiro

Back when Jesus was born, King Herod rejected the new born King. Today, we should learn from that lesson by allowing Jesus to be King. King Herod did not attempt to spiritually seek God. We should make every effort to seek Jesus ourselves. Let Jesus be the greatest miracle in your life! (W1650)

The World's Response
Jon Burgess

The World might not take interest in our God or Church but we must take interest through Gigantic Prayers. The World might not make room for God but we should make room for God in our lives through Godís perspective. The World might not be generous but we should be cheerfully generous. (W1649)
