Why You Will See Nonbelievers Saved When You Grasp These 3 Things

Belief determines behavior.

When I was born again, I glorified God in seeing nine of my closest family and friends born again as well. When my wife and her parents were converted, the six siblings at home all followed suit, and my close friend, Ché Ahn, also saw his entire family come to faith in Christ.

Coincidence? Or could it be cooperation with the plan of God that some don't believe in or have never understood?

Evangelist Mario Murillo Wants You to Do This When You Feel Culturally Ostracized

As American culture tries its hand at celebrating during the holidays, it is no surprise that you just don't fit in. You do not get stoned, drunk or high on anything. Their way of celebrating holds no place for you. You do not fit.

A social pariah, that is what you are to them.

"We have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you" (1 Peter 4:4, NKJV).

What is Christmas All About? Look No Further Than Charlie Brown

In the Charlie Brown Christmas classic, little Linus explains perfectly what the true meaning of Christmas is. "That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown," Linus says after reciting the birth story of Christ from Luke 2 (KJV):

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men."

That passage summarizes some of the supernatural events from the night of Jesus' birth, but it's just one of many Bible verses that illuminate the spiritual significance and eternal impact of that day. In fact, the birth of Christ was foretold in prophecies centuries before He arrived.
