Tis the season and in North Texas we have just gotten our first taste of winter. And it’s about time! Now we have weather to match the Christmas season! Isn’t it great when things work together the way they’re supposed to!
It makes me wonder what the weather was like in Bethlehem on that night many years ago when Joseph and Mary could find no room in the inn to offer comfort and shelter for the birth of Jesus.
It’s pretty clear that December 25th is an arbitrary date for the celebration of His human birth. So as far as we know, there is no clear historical record as to when—what time of year—Jesus was actually born. And the biblical accounts make no mention of weather conditions.
So… as much as many of us like the cold and snow of a traditional American Christmas, it may not have been that way in Bethlehem on that night a bit over 2000 years ago.
Just some random thoughts as I ponder the Christmas season. I’m glad you’ve stopped by.
Inside the Studio this week, we introduced a wonderful subject…
Bob Christopher and Andrew Farley
On Wednesday of this week Bob and Andrew discussed the true meaning of joy.
As we’ve noted on previous editions of Inside the Studio, your questions are a huge part of the life-blood of this ministry.
What’s going on in your mind? Your heart? What questions do you have about your spiritual life? Are you experiencing the joy of your salvation? I hope so. If not, why not? Give us a call. We’d love to discuss it with you.
And it doesn’t have to be just about joy. Whatever you are experiencing … whatever may be troubling you, we can talk it through with you. It’s why we’re here.
Our 24/7 On-Air Line is 844-322-2742. Use this number to call in on the live program at 3:00 P.M. Central, Monday-Friday, or at other times to record your question for us to play back and discuss soon on the Basic Gospel program.
If you prefer to submit a question online, just visit our special listener page at basicgospel.net/ask. There you can either write your question or record it in your own voice.
Either way, we are here to serve you. Let us hear from you!
Merry Christmas, everybody!
