Books by Stan Gale
As with all of us in all of our roles, we are not to live for ourselves but for Christ.
WWJD poses a legitimate question for those who count themselves disciples.
We are not to be surprised by suffering but expectant of it and prepared for it.
Under the rule of Christ, we operate on different principles than those of the world.
We exercise our freedom from this fallen world not by subversion but by submission for the sake of Christ.
Only by explaining our behavior in terms of Christ will God be glorified on the day of visitation.
Together with the saints of old, we are Christ’s church.
We are reminded that the church is not a building but a people.
Good news of great joy for all people
We grow in holiness through the steady diet of God’s Word.
Christmas this year falls on a Sunday.
