Do You Excuse Your Own Sin?

0 Comment

We all know the deadly nature of sin, but we are often unaware of its subtle sidekick — the excuse. Excuses convert the seriousness of sin into a simple shoulder shrug. “It was just a mistake on a tired night.” No big deal. Not my fault. And just like that, we downgrade our greatest offenses […]

 When I learned my dear friend was killed in a car accident this summer, I was stunned. She was my second mom, and a faithful wife, mother, and friend. She was unforgettable.

“Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.”(Luke 24:5–6) The believers who saw the risen Christ with their own eyes and touched him with their hands spent the rest of their lives talking about the resurrection.

The allure of Christmas has a strange power over us, even the unbelieving and seemingly secularized. The season has a kind a draw, a type of “spirit” or “magic,” that makes the winter solstice festival every bit as big today, in an increasingly post-Christian society, as it was in the 1950s.
