A Right Christmas

By Jo Ann Alo / December 12, 2018 / 2 Comments

Infant in a manger? More precisely…Savior from sin. Who wants to open a sack of sin at Christmas? Look, I like jingle belling as much as anybody, but Christmas is not all Nat King Cole and slippers under the tree. We pine for love, joy and peace, not to mention kindness and gentleness, but when…

So what is the meaning of such passages as “justified by His blood”(Rom 5:9), “Christ’s blood cleanses our conscience from dead works to serve the living God” (Heb 9:14), “Purchased by His blood” (Acts 20:28) In…
