As we celebrate Christmas this year it is significant to emphasize one of the reasons our Lord Jesus Christ was born—to testify to the Truth! “Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the Truth. All who love the Truth recognize that what I say is true.” John 18:37 NLT
In the last two years most of us have been surprised at what has transpired in our country and in the world. The Covid spread, related premature deaths, civil disturbances, mask mandates, quarantining, Zoom meetings, and some evangelical churches going “woke.” It has been an eye-opener, disconcerting, and a spiritual wake-up call all at the same time.
I am reminded of what the Apostle Paul wrote to the young pastor, Timothy, “You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.” 2 Timothy 3:1 NLT “… while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of.” 2 Timothy 3:13, 14. “Entrust these (truths) to faithful people who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2 NASV
