Are you getting excited about Christmas? Or should I say, “How are you doing as your children get completely excited about Christmas?” This season generates a lot of excitement and anticipation, especially in the younger ones among us!
This past weekend, in the communion service at Guelph Bible Chapel, we were reminded of the amazing link between this season of good cheer and excitement and the greatest gift ever given when Christ became “sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5.21 In several other events and conversations I have been reminded that Christ, our God and King, showed us the true humility of God. Is it not amazing that God, the Almighty, Everlasting, Eternal, Creator of all that ever is and was – this God is humble? What a mighty God we serve!
The World Team family is celebrating another major event at this time. After a lengthy and involved process, David Riddell has been appointed as our new International Director. If you'd like to read the official statement sent out recently, write me at Jacob.Ginter@WorldTeam.org. I’d invite you to be in prayer for David and Becky as they make this transition. Please also pray for World Team at large, realizing that change is never stress-free nor without its fears. Personally, I have every confidence in David’s leadership: I’ve served directly under him for the past two years.
Pray also specifically for the Europe area as we work through the leadership issues involved in David’s new appointment.
Wishing you God’s very best as you enjoy this Christmas Season!
