Happy Friday afternoon Friends! I had an unexpected chore to attend to this morning when I got home from work, so I was not able to sit down and put this together until after I took a short nap. Feeling a little refreshed, I realized I have not shared Elevation Church’s word from this past weekend. The great Levi Lusko spoke an ever impressive word that you HAVE to listen to. Just click the image below and you’ll see what I mean.
My two number 22’s for the countdown today are another fun, energetic tune from TobyMac, entitled “Christmas This Year:”
And today brings the first of a handful of amazing Christmas songs from the brother duo for King & Country. They started our countdown with their monologue and they’ll keep supplying us with many other tracks along the next three weeks. I hope you are enjoying this holiday season, I know I am!
21”To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.
22Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 3:21, 22)
The Seven Churches of Revelation are all located on an ancient trade route in modern Turkey. I found a very amazing resource here that provides pictures of these ancient structures that almost 2,000 years ago were some of the most important structures in the Middle East. Now they sit as tourist attractions.
Whoever has eyes, let them read this: whether Christianity becomes a relic of the past or the way to the future depends on this generation. You have spent this year studying a long overdue book of life. I pray you use this to catapult yourself to a new life in Christ and give everything you have to ensure Christianity regains prominence in this broken world.
