The first Christmas was not a perfect scene. Jesus did not come to decorate, He came to redeem.
God's powerful presence in Finney's life had been too overwhelming to ignore.
If your faith fails, don't blame God.
When the accounts dry up, does your faith also go bankrupt?
God gives this generously to the right people who are asking for the right thing. You're next.

Did you know Americans will spend over $6 billion in Christmas decorations this year? Everywhere you go we create the perfect Christmas scenes, but did you know that the first Christmas was far from the decorations? Christ did not come to decorate, Jesus came to redeem. But redemption is hard work. It requires a difficult choice and a submissive life. Covering up is much easier than opening up.

During a visit to New York Mills in 1826, he visited a cotton manufacturing plant where his brother-in-law was superintendent. As Finney passed through a spacious room in which many women were working at looms and spinning jennies, he noticed several young women watching him and speaking among themselves.
As Finney approached them, they became more agitated. When Finney was about ten feet away, one woman sank to the ground and burst into tears. Soon others were sobbing, overcome with conviction of their sin. This outpouring of the Spirit spread rapidly throughout the building until the entire factory was singularly aware of God's presence.
The owner, an unbeliever, realized God was at work and temporarily closed the plant. He asked Finney to preach to his employees and tell them how they might find peace for their souls. Finney had not spoken to any of the laborers. He had simply entered the factory. God's powerful presence in Finney's life had been too overwhelming to ignore.

- You have a very special purpose - as the first fruits of his creatures.
- You have a very faithful God - no shadow due to change, this means we can seek solid truth in our trials. God gives good things.
