Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

Don't Drink and Drive this Holiday Season!

Here we are again, ushering out the calendar year that's nearly over and ushering in the New Year. 2013 is nearly expired and 2014 is about to begin. But this week, between Christmas and New Years, brings lots of time off for many folks and lots of parties too.

I've written over and over again that I believe if Amanda's killer would have been sober, she would still be alive. Instead, he was drunk and stoned. Now she's dead and he's in prison. Too often, partying seems fun until the party ends in tragedy. So this is your annual year-end warning from me to teenagers everywhere, STAY SOBER!

This year, I'm posting a drinking and driving video from the UK that I believe does about as good a job as anything I've seen to illustrate the death and destruction caused by substance abuse. It's very, very graphic, but it certainly communicates the message I want to convey here.

"Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." ~ 1 Peter 5:8

If you don't know Jesus as your personal savior, if you're missing the faith, hope, and love written about here, if you want the peace that we as Christians have in our lives, please visit our Got Jesus? page for step-by-step instructions on how to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.
