Christian Living in December

Christian Calendar (Holidays), Christian Living Articles, December, December Now

This post is part 12 of the series:Christian Living SeriesOften, the Christmas season is the most meaningful time of year—for both the believer and unbeliever. Many fail to use this season of the year to point to Christ as fully as they might to Christianize the world around them. While some attempt to sanctify the carnal and merely sensuous for Christian purposes, the Apostle Paul warns believers to build with materials that are most precious and most enduring (1 Corinthians 3:10-18).
