I almost forgot to share this for Christmas!Question: Is this THE GREATEST CHRISTMAS SONG OF ALL TIME?I don't know. Words like that get thrown around a lot. But yeah, it probably is. It's profound and makes you weep. Weep for Christmases past, weep for the state of music, weep for the lost last 90 seconds of your life. Gone forever.Or maybe it's TIED for the greatest. Here's the definitive and final ranking. 5. Away in a Manger4. Silent Night3. O Come O Come Emmanuel2. O Holy Night1. (Tie) Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring"1.

Christmas and the Kingdom that Never Ends--So Herod wanted a fortress on a mountain. But there wasn’t a mountain at the site. So he had thousands of his slaves build a mountain for him. That’s how he rolled, as one of the richest, most powerful men in human history. He had a kingdom, and he would ensure it would last forever.He outfitted the fortress (which he named after himself) with massive double-walls and water reservoirs and bath houses even a stone amphitheater for major productions It was –by design—a knee-buckling, intimidating sight for all. It was a sign of his unending riches, his unquestionable power. Herod wasn't just a raging narcissist, he was paranoid. He fended off any and all perceived threats brutally. (His ordered genocide of male infants gives you insight into this.) His power was too much to question. No threats could be tolerated; his kingdom would outlast them all.--I’m posting a photo of that mountain, which still stands today. Imagine how imposing Herodium would look with a fortress silhouetted atop that hill. It was an ever-present reminder of who was in charge. But here’s an interesting thing: That photo of Herodium is taken from the city of... get this...Bethlehem.Jesus was born within view of Herod’s towering monument to power. (In fact, on the Bethlehem Visitors site, it says you can “walk along the Manger Street and look all the time to the right … and look there is the truncated volcano like hill in the background – that’s Herodium!”Right there. Looming over everything and everyone. The ultimate symbol of Power, erected by one of the most powerful men to ever live. An impenetrable fortress! No vulnerability! A kingdom that will last forever!“This is how I’ll do it,” God says. He picks that spot. And His Kingdom breaks through with a baby’s cry. In a room with some animals. No fortress needed. This God makes himself vulnerable.--2,000 years later, one kingdom is dust. The other still stands. and Guess which one?This Kingdom is different. This King is different. And He shall reign forever and ever.Merry Christmas. ... See MoreSee Less

Bump into a tree. See what falls.

Bump into a tree. See what falls.

Jesus talked about judging a tree. Here’s some stuff he didn’t say: “Want to know what kind of tree you’re dealing with? Just ask the tree. If it talks a good game, you can trust it.” “You know what kind of tree you’re dealing with, if the tree leads an awesome ministry. If it does […]
