Verse for the week

This weekend has been great with a lot of little lessons along the way.
Laurie and I went with friends to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra last night at the American Airlines Center - amazing show.
And I thought the message they portrayed in the first half of the show went along great with Brian's message this morning at encounter. I hope to expound on it all later this week... but until then here's the verses from Brian's message:
This is how we've come to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves. If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love? It disappears. And you made it disappear. - 1 John 3:16-17
I think that's a great summary of what Christmas should be all about. What about you? How does this impact your life or your Christmas season? Is it all about what you're wanting to get or is it about really helping your fellow man? How are you celebrating Christmas this year?
