The way Christmas is celebrated in society today is the opposite of the reality of God. People want to think of the story of the Christ child as just a cute, safe anecdote, something to think about once a year.

But throughout the Bible we see that God is not content to be the stuff of someone’s occasional thought. He is active, interceding, pursuing, confronting, healing, making a difference. He insists on being part of the everyday lives of his children, not just a cute story to think about when one is feeling low.

One way that God is active in the world is in working through believers, using his power to transform lives. The more one is wil1ing to believe and surrender, the more fantastic things God can do through them.

    20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

"We have been podrishioners for several months. Our daughter, son-in-law and grandkids moved back to California after living in MN for 10 years. They attended Woodland Hills for about a year before they moved. Now we all go to the beach together on Thursdays, come home and have dinner together, then we watch last Sunday’s sermon together. It is a special day for our family."

– Dale and Patricia, from California
