A Christian Christmas Devotional Recipe
What is it about hot, apple cider that makes us crave a toasty cup? Could it be the raw press of the apples without reconstitution?
Hot, apple cider kicks out a punchy flavor, yet it is comforting to the palette. It reminds me of the Truth of God’s Word; never watered-down.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. ~Hebrews 4:12 KJV
