It's Never Too Late to Answer God's Call

The season to celebrate God's gift to humankind is once again upon us. If not Santa, then what image most accurately conveys the meaning of Christmas to our children (see the article below, God's Christmas Image)?

Has your desire always been to serve God and contribute to His kingdom? Do you think you've missed it? Don't worry. You can step into God's call on your life at any age (Finishing Well). But be prepared—some spiritual forces may not want you to move ahead in God (Purity Before Freedom).

Forces with diverse agendas have of late influenced various social spheres. Contrary to their wishes, parents are being told their kids should stay in "anti-homophobia" classes (Muslim Parents Urged to Keep Kids in Pro-Gay Classes). Euthanasia and assisted suicide are back on the public agenda (Life and Death Reloaded). Government officials are giving unfair advantage to atheists and agnostics as they try to maintain a separation between Church and State (God Giveth; Will the Tax Department Taketh Away?). And marriage commissioners, irrespective of conscience, are expected to perform same-sex weddings (Canadian Court Decisions Violate Charter's "Freedom of Conscience" Protection).

For more on marriage, the article, Marriage is a Precious Gift from God, is an excellent, well-researched document that you can use to defend the biblical view of marriage.

Blessings in Christ,
