Band of Brothers
The LORD is with you, mighty warrior
we do here echoes in eternity”
designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will
die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a
to live with honor before God and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause,
to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that
will echo in eternity.

Charles Dickens’ novel A Christmas Carol was released on December
19, 1843, and has never been out of print. It tells the story of
Ebenezer Scrooge, a wealthy, sour, stingy man who says, “Every idiot
who goes about with ‘Merry Christmas,’ on his lips, should be boiled
with his own pudding!” Yet, one Christmas Eve, Scrooge is radically
changed into a generous and happy man. With great humor and insight,
Dickens’ book captures the universal longing for inner peace.
As a young man, the apostle Paul opposed Jesus and His followers
with a vengeful spirit. He “made havoc of the church, entering every
house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison”
(Acts 8:3). But one day he encountered the risen Christ, and his
life became a different story (9:1-16).
In a letter to
Timothy, his son in the faith, Paul described that life-changing
event by saying, even though he was “a blasphemer, a persecutor, and
an insolent man . . . the grace of our Lord was exceedingly
abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus” (1 Tim.
Jesus was born into our world and gave His life so
that we can be forgiven and transformed through faith in Him. This
is the heart of Christmas!
Then let us all with one accord Sing
praises to our heavenly Lord, That hath made
heaven and earth of naught, And with His blood
mankind hath bought. —English carol
A change in behavior begins with Jesus
changing our heart.
Insight Though Paul’s words to Timothy
in today’s reading are not one of the traditional
biblical texts we read at Christmas, they definitely
have application for this season. In verse 15 we
read: “Christ Jesus came into the world.” This is a
reference not only to Christ’s coming but also to
His purpose for coming. Why was He born in human
flesh? Paul answers that question by adding, “to
save sinners.” Jesus’ coming was a mission of rescue
for a race that desperately needed a Savior.

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
