You can feel the excitement in the air. There is a buzz in the crowd. Something big is going to happen. It’s not an NFL playoff game or the calm before the big sale at your favorite retailer begins.

Does January have to be a dark month? Not in the light of the Christ child! The light the shown for the world still shines today!

Moses’ final four sermons contained in Deuteronomy contain harsh warnings for anyone that changes God’s word. The stakes were high. The Savior of the world was to come to these Israelites.

This is why we so desperately need Jesus. Hear Jesus and live!
