An entire nation missed Christmas. All of Rome could have shared in the Savior’s birth, but they missed it. That first Christmas was set in a Roman scene. Herod, for example, was the ruler appointed by Rome. And it was a decree by Caesar Augustus that set everything in motion ( Luke 2:1 ). Who was Caesar Augustus? He’s mentioned only once in Scripture, but he occupies an...

I didn’t mean...

An old Chinese proverb says, "One generation plants the trees, and another gets the shade." You and I are still benefiting from the shade provided by trees planted by our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. We are shaded, to some degree, by their moral standards and spiritual commitment. Now the spade is in our hands and the question facing us is, "What kind of...
