Prattville Dragoons Chaplian's Column for December 2013

The following is the Chaplain's Column from the Dragoons Camp Dispatch for December 2013.

Chaplain’s Column:  Jesus Comes To Us
            As the Christmas season approaches I have found myself thinking about How Jesus came to earth and the way he started His ministry. Jesus came in a manger for you and for me. He willingly left the glories and riches of heaven to be born in a stable. He took the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:7).
            Jesus became poor so that we might become rich. He lived a life of such abject poverty that when He had to pay taxes, He had to look for a coin in a fish’s mouth (Mathew 17: 24-27). When He sent out His disciples, He told them to take nothing but a staff and the power of the Holy Spirit (Mark 6:7-9). He was put to death like a common criminal so that we could wear a royal robe!
            Child of God, you are rich! I am rich! Praise God! I would encourage each of you to read Philippians 2:6-11 with your family or friends today as a Christmas devotional. Spend time praising God for His Son, Jesus.
            I would like to take this opportunity to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas. It has been a blessed year for the Dragoons.
            Please pray for the following:

1.    James Little's wife Nita
2.    David Brantley's wife Jennifer
3.    John Durden's son (David Fail) TIA
4.    JJ Oakley
5.    James Whittington - Back surgery, pain and needs to return to job

6.     Harry Rawlinson - Long-time Dragoon member is recovering from a heart attack.
Yours In Christ,
Tom Snowden, Chaplain
