Merry Christmas from Call2Disciple!


“Hark the herald angels sing ‘Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild God and sinners reconciled’”

Our dear friends,

We pray joy for you this Christmastime – unspeakable joy -- fresh and abundant joy. For this season – this amazing season! -- has the power of God to put song into our lives. No matter what the year has been like – no matter what our situations might be – we who belong to Jesus Christ hear once again that ancient song deep in our soul that brings all things back to focus.

“Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings, Ris'n with healing in His wings”

We have no greater joy at CALL2DISCIPLE than to constantly point to the wonder, the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – who He is, what He came to do, and what He wants to do in and through us.

This is the whole point of discipleship: to receive Jesus Christ into our lives, to be changed by Him at the very center of who we are, and then to allow the Holy Spirit to mature us in His word, in faith, in life and practice “until Christ is formed in you.” This is the will of God for each of us -- He wants to form character in us – holy and godly character that is pleasing in His sight.

And as He does this work in us, He sends us out to sing this song to a world in need of Him:

“Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth”

We have a song to sing! And we pray the Lord sings His song over you -- your family, your church -- that fills you with joy and wonder, healing, grace and blessing that’s found in Jesus our Lord.

May His name be praised!
