O Come Emmanuel

Dec 5, 2013 — Leave a comment

“O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Christ came the first time to pay the ultimate price for all of our sins – His life. The Holy, Spotless, Lamb of God was our only hope.

With the way the world is today, this song takes on a whole new meaning. I think of the verse in Revelation 22:20 which says,

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

I am ready for HIM to come again! Are you? O come, O Come Emmanuel!

CMM - Sweet SixteenThis morning the top 16 movies are revealed and the voting process begins. Here is how this works…

1. The top 16 teams are placed into a bracket format where #1 takes on #16; #2 goes up against #15, and so on until all of the movies are paired up against another one.

2. You will have this week to vote for your favorite movie in each pairing.

3. You can only vote one time per day, so be sure to use your votes wisely and come back each day to vote again.
