Freely Given - December 2016

December is usually a busy month for most of us and this year is no exception at Cook Baptist Church. We will be blessed with special opportunities to experience the Christmas story through musicals and carol singing. We will share the love of Jesus through gift-giving and ministering to the needs of others. We will fellowship with each other and celebrate this time of year with our families. Sometimes all the extra activity can wear us out emotionally and physically.

Let me challenge you this year to ask God to reveal Himself to you in midst of these activities and to remind you of the real meaning of Christmas. As we approach the busyness of the Christmas season, please do not let activity overshadow your ability to reflect on the miracle of God’s coming to earth as a little baby.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your son Jesus. May this be a special Christmas season in the life of your people here at Cook Baptist Church.
