Nothing says Christmas like a water buffalo. For a poor family in Asia, getting a water buffalo is like getting a farm tractor to pull a plow, or getting a milk truck full of delicious milk, or getting a stand at the market to sell cheese.

A water buffalo opens the door for work, food, and income. More importantly, it opens the door to talk about Jesus. And nothing says Christmas better than that. Not key to Kolov, the Russian nightmare.

No, the devil's nightmare. Hear from its time to man up. Challenging men to step into their true manhood. Your chosen Truth Network Podcast is starting in just a few seconds. Enjoy it.

Share it. But most of all, thank you for listening to the Truth Podcast Network. Welcome to the Christian Party. Welcome to the Christian Car Guy Show. We've had a bit of a technical snafu, which happens sometimes with our intros, but this particular Christian Car Guy Show is Oh Christmas Tree 2, right?

If you listened to this show last year, the first weekend in December, it was Oh Christmas Tree 1. And interestingly, I had Bill Mixon, my Christian insurance guy, with me then, and I have him with me again. And fortunately, we're going to get his mic on here in a second, so go ahead. Yes, it's always a pleasure to be in with you, Robbie. So we're having, again, a few struggles.

We'll get it together. But anyway, what happened last year was we talked on and on and on about the idea of trees are everywhere, and they signify Christmas in so many different ways. So today's Christian Car Guy Show is brought to you by the Hebrew letter zadik, which, if you were to look at the letter, it looks a lot like a tree, and it means righteousness.

And so it's interesting that the world got made right on the cross, right, Bill? Yeah, I love the idea that it's an evergreen tree. Evergreen, it's beautiful, it smells wonderful.

It does smell wonderful. We're going to get into that. We've got all sorts of different ways we're going to go into that. Oh, you've got our intro ready to play. So we're going to actually play the intro so that you can hear what I wanted you to hear at the beginning. So go ahead, Carmen, go ahead and play it.

We hope it's coming. Now that's the outro. All right. Okay, that was an intro with the outro at the same thing, but anyway.

It's a jazzy tune to get things started. It's okay, Carmen, we'll just go on with the show, as they say in the show biz, right? You just got to go... Oh, here it comes. Oh, I love that.

Carmen, that's interesting. There you go. All right. She keeps trying, but that's okay.

Quit trying. We're good, Carmen. We're good. So it's all fine.

It'll all come out okay. Anyway, so if you have eyes to see it, you really do. And today, if you would kind of think about John chapter 10. And in John chapter 10, I think I can make a case. Again, when we're thinking about trees and we're thinking about righteousness, we're thinking about Christmas.

Why is it that the whole world seems to want to light up trees? Well, in John chapter 10, you might see that that happened on the 25th of Kislev, right? Because it says in John chapter 10 that it was the Feast of Dedication. Well, the Feast of Dedication is, most people would know, is Hanukkah. Or some people even call it the Festival of Lights. And so Jesus was teaching on that particular holiday.

And what he was teaching may be of great value when you think about that he was going to light up everybody's Christmas trees for all time as they begin to unravel what it was he was sharing. And so when you look at the original dedication of the tabernacle, and again, you're just going to have to stick with me here in a minute and you'll get to it. See, when Moses went into the tabernacle in Numbers chapter 7, if you look at the last verse of Numbers chapter 7, he's going to do the dedication for the original. They're going to dedicate the altar on the original tabernacle.

And there were a lot of things that they had to do in order for this to take place. And actually, it happened on the eighth day, which is similar to the eight lights that you see when you're on the Festival of Lights of Hanukkah. But anyway, so as Moses goes in there, he hears a voice of the Lord and it's coming from the mercy seat.

Which is tremendously significant because if you know that the mercy seat is Jesus, then you can pretty much know that Moses was hearing Jesus. And what he was told to do is hugely significant, so if you move from Numbers chapter 7 to Numbers chapter 8, it's the very next verse, it says that the Lord told Moses to tell Aaron to light the menorah. Well, again, if you knew the menorah, it was like the big candlestick is what people call it, but when you look at the way it was originally designed, it was designed to look like a tree. It was an almond tree.

It's got branches, it's got fruit, it's got buds, it's got all these things. So what was this voice that Moses heard? When my sheep hear my voice, which is what all about John chapter 10 is, is my sheep hear my voice and what is he getting told to do? He's on the 25th, by the way, of Kislev, which is their month of December, so to speak, if you get the challenge there. That all of a sudden he's getting told to light it up, and so is it just a coincidence that you think that we light Christmas trees on the 25th of December?

When? It happens to be the darkest month of the year. There's no doubt that you see this. And then you go back to the idea of what is light and how does that go on, and in John chapter 1 we find out that in him was life, and that life was the light of the world. I mean, the light of men. And so just go back to Genesis a minute and say what was the first thing that God did after he made the earth? When he began to make the earth, right? Let there be light, right?

Yes, one of the first things done. And so what was in the middle of the garden that he made was this tree of life, and the Jews have taught for centuries that the tree of life was lit. Well, it would only make kind of sense when you think about it because if Jesus is the light of the world. And so you almost get this sense that what we are rehearsing are the reason why we are so enchanted and you can take any three-year-old and put them in front of a Christmas tree and they're just in awe.

Why? Because we're all looking for Eden. We're all looking for the tree of life. We're all looking for this idea and for it to light up on the 25th of December in a dark world.

It's a beautiful thing. I love a good Christmas tree. We've got ours sitting there ready to be decorated.

We need two. That's interesting. So here's another little fun fact. So if you're going to go into the tabernacle back in the day, right, and we're just trying to get that whole Christmas feel around what's going on. So that original dedication happened around that same time when Moses was dedicating that tabernacle. And they were told that they were to burn frankincense in front of the bread of the present.

So we've done a whole show on the bread of the present, so I won't go into all that. But if you ever – I just happen to be dealing with some frankincense because I'm going to use it for a Christmas party that I'm doing later today. And as I'm sitting there handling this frankincense and I'm also handling my Christmas tree, I'm smelling the two and I'm going, well, wait a minute. So when they walked into the holy place with this lit almond tree, right, they're smelling – I mean, if you smell frankincense, it smells just like Christmas. I'm just telling you. And so can you imagine you walk into – you know, for those of us who celebrated Christmas all our life and when you smell that smell of a pine tree, you immediately think Christmas. Well, can you imagine you walk into the tabernacle, what do you see? You see this lit up almond tree and you see and you smell Christmas in frankincense. I'm just saying. So those of us that went into the electric trees need to get us some of that Christmas smell.

Right. Well, you know, it was interesting. I ordered some frankincense because I'm going to do this whole thing on bread in Bethlehem on the Christmas party that I'm doing today. And since, you know, I wanted to get some real frankincense and so I'd been messing with it ever since last night.

But I was trying to – in my mind, I'm going, this smell is awfully familiar. It wasn't, you know, strange to me at all, but as I began to think, wow, it smells like Christmas. It looks like Christmas.

These lights, these things. And so we're rehearsing this story, right, which is God's story, which things are going to get made right by a tree. They were made right by the wood of Noah's Ark.

We talked about this last year. You know, there's wood in every sacrifice that it's what's burned in order to make the burnt offerings, right? There's certainly wood on the cross and you get this picture. So if you look at Christian Cargai today, the website, I posted this beautiful picture that has a cross and menorah and a Christmas tree all lined up.

So you kind of get the picture. But I'm hoping we can actually play our intro in a minute and we could get to part of what I wanted to do in the show today. Thanks so much. We'll be right back. Oh, Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, we learn from all your beauty. It's a fascinating thing that it says there. And that's obviously, well, maybe not obviously, it's from Christmas Chronicles 2, which has a lot to do with the Star Bethlehem. It has a lot to do with light. It has something to do with Christmas trees, obviously.

That's what they're singing about. But today on the Christian Cargai show, as we write, one of the things that I love to do in a car, I'm sure you do too, is to go look at Christmas lights, right? And you may have noticed, and I've certainly noticed, that since COVID happened and so many different things, it seems like more people have put out lights.

Have you noticed this, Bill? We moved. So our new neighborhood is lit up. Of course, it's next to Tanglewood. The neighborhood starts to look like Tanglewood. Well, for those who are listening in other places, Tanglewood is where our actual festival of lights are. So if you're in a car and you're driving through Tanglewood, you're going to see all these lights. I mean, it's millions, millions and millions.

But clearly in my neighborhood, I mean, you don't want to be the guy that doesn't have lights because it's just gone crazy. And the neat thing, when you think about it, is people want, they want to eat, Bill. They want to feel that enchantment. They want to feel like, you know, things are getting back to what, you know, God originally intended. And it gives you a sense of peace.

And it gives you a sense of enlightenment. So, you know, obviously this is a live show and we'd love to hear from you this Christmas, as we go into this Christmas season, as we're thinking about Christmas trees. I want to say a few insurance things here. One thing I'd like you to do is to check all those extension cords and see if any of them are warm.

If they're the least bit warm, you've got a problem you need to address. It's really good to make sure you've got one of those that's got a safety pop on it that will go if there's a problem. But don't ever link two up together.

For some reason, when you link two up together, you negate their benefits. So make it a safe holiday. Those of you that still have the fresh trees, cut the very bottom of it off right before you stick it in water and keep the water in it through the season.

So those needles don't dry out. Make it a happy, wonderful, safe, and not one of those that has the extra sirens that show up in the middle of the night. All right. So when it comes to your Christmas tree, right, which you're going to go get or you've already gotten it, like we went last weekend. It's our tradition to go up to Boone, North Carolina, and cut our Christmas tree, you know, which is really, really fun. And there's a hayride that you get on to go up there and do that.

And you bundle up in a blanket and it's always cold and windy up there for whatever reason. And, you know, it's just it's a very festive thing. You bring it home, you know, and it is cut already at the bottom because, you know, it was fresh. I know it makes you feel good, Bill. Well, a lot of people don't go see them cut it. So it's been cut about two weeks, you know, makes a big difference if you nip it off. Oh, I understand.

So I would love to know, what's your Christmas tree tradition or what's your thoughts about it? 866-348-7884, 866-34-TRUTH. But I really feel like, and John Eldritch did a beautiful podcast this week. It's on Wild at Heart. And he talked about, you know, there is a larger story that the world has been telling since the beginning of time, and it's actually God's story. And it's God's story of how he is going to redeem us and put us back in that enchanted place that's going to smell like frankincense. And it's going to look like lit up, you know, Santa's village or whatever it is that you picture just this enchanted place that this beautiful, gorgeous thing because Jesus came to do all that stuff. And so how cool is it that we do get to hear his voice? It's a critical part of Christmas.

And so for me, literally this morning, I'm not talking about something that happened weeks ago, but this morning on numerous occasions, including when all my audio stuff failed. I'm asking God, where are we going here? But I really wanted to go to see where he wanted to go this morning. And honestly, Bill, I've been looking at John chapter 10 for maybe four or five weeks trying to put together, how does this fit with Christmas?

Because I know it happened on the 25th of Kislev, and I know that Jesus was going to teach something here. How does it fit? What exactly does that do? And so I'm sitting there and I'm asking God this morning in prayer, I'm just saying, God, where does this fit?

How does this work? And he says to me, Robbie, go look at the feast of the original dedication. So very fun, just take a blue letter Bible app and type in the word dedication, right, which is the word that's used in John chapter 10. And it goes right to Numbers chapter 7.

I mean, this is how easy God took me on this path. And as soon as I saw Numbers chapter 7, I went, oh, hey, here is the original dedication of the tabernacle. And then I could see, wow. And I knew that Jesus was teaching about my sheep here, my voice. Well, what was Moses listening? And he hears from the mercy seat, right, at the dedication.

I mean, how beautiful is that? And then you flip the chapter to chapter 8 and you see, what do they do? They light up the menorah. Well, I'd put it together, the menorah was a tree earlier in the week. And so I was, I've been thinking about the menorah all week.

You know, and you guys just get caught up in my, you know, what is this that I've been rambling about? But nonetheless, you know, just, I couldn't be more excited about what that means for me this Christmas. Because one of the funnest things that I get to do really is hear from God. I mean, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas for me if I didn't get to hear his voice.

And I'm hoping that you share in that too. But I can tell you, easy way to do it, I taught this in my Sunday school last week. I guess a lot of people say, I never hear from God. I said, okay, finish this verse for me. For God so loved the world. God just told you that. Well, the Holy Spirit, right, gives you the rest of the verse. So take a Bible verse of your choice. And if you hear the end of it, guess who just told that to you? The more scripture you got tucked away in there, the better the Holy Spirit can talk to you. All right, right. So God talks to you through all that scripture, right? Well, as we get more and more used to that voice, then we can begin to hear.

You're listening to the Truth Network and truthnetwork.com Welcome to the Christian Car Guy radio show. Your branches. Not only green when summer's here, but in the coldest time of year. Oh, Christmas tree. Right there, we finally we got it. And that was the intro that we had for today's show. Christmas tree.

And you might have heard from Brother Bear, the two moose, if you didn't know that. But when they were talking about the game, I spy, which I hope you play. And it's a great game, by the way, to play in a car. But if you're in the woods and all you see are trees, you know, that's kind of where it goes. I spy something green. You know, I spy, you know, it's funny because ever since we saw that on my kids, any time we play the game, we just can't help it.

I spy vertical log. Anyway, you know, as we go into this time of year, we all get a chance to travel. You know, what is what is it that you feel like God is saying to you? And one of the things, you know, as I talked about that I get to hear God's voice to me is one of the most exciting things I can possibly imagine. I get to hear it as I study his word.

I get to hear it actually when I ask him certain questions. And so one of the questions that I ask every year is what is a word that that we can work on this year? And last year in December, he gave me the word engage. And so all year long, I've been asking, OK, God, where where do you want me to engage? And he had me engaging in all sorts of different exercise, things different, a whole bunch of fun things I got to engage in in 2022 based on that word that he gave me. But the real thing that he gave me to engage is in scripture memorization.

And so he started off easy for me, Bill. So I started off, he wanted me to memorize the third excuse me, the 16th Psalm. I'd already memorized the 23rd Psalm. Now he wanted me to memorize the 16th Psalm, which the 16 Psalms really, really cool.

It's the one in his presence, his fullness of joy. Right. And so it didn't take me but maybe a month or so to memorize the 16th Psalm. And I now I had that in my heart, like you were talking about.

Right. And I could hear it any time. And it was amazing how many times somebody would say something and it would flick off a verse that was in that song.

Because it's especially the end of it is like my heart rejoices in all these different things that happen. So I get done with that and I'm saying, what now, God? And he said, I want you to memorize the 13th Psalm. So in my mind, and God sends you humor, as I am thinking, how long is the 13th Psalm? And so if you happen to know the first verse in the 13th Psalm, you know what it is?

How long? You know, the 13th Psalm, by the way, is a very short Psalm and it's how long will you forget me, O Lord? And it wasn't terribly long. Well, so I get done with the 13th Psalm and I was like, okay, God, where are we engaged now? And he said, okay, Robbie, I want you to memorize the 119th Psalm. And so the good news is I'm still engaged in that to this very day.

I think I'm in the 80s now of verses that I have. But I mean, oh my goodness, what a journey it has been for four months. And there's no explaining to anybody how the things that you've memorized will light up in your face, you know, throughout the day when you're working on that much Scripture. And the neat thing is, is, Bill, I got a long drive every day from the station back, and I actually make it four times as I go home for lunch. And that's when I do all my reciting back and forth.

And so all that comes to life. And so this week, as I was just delighted, I was just like, man, God, this has been so much fun, this word engage. How could you beat this word for 2022?

I'm like, man, there's just no way. I can't imagine there could be anything more fun that I've had in 2021 with this word. What's my word for 2022? And it didn't take me long. He said, Robbie, your word for 2022 is delight. He said, oh, there's going to be good.

Can you imagine? I mean, I, you know, the year before was, the year before I'd had engage, right? That word was love. It was a hava love. It was a different kind of love than I had really studied before. And the word before, that was prosper, which was really, that took me in places that I, but what I'm saying all this is to say, is that one of the neatest Christmas presents I get personally, right, is what Jesus is talking about in John chapter 10, my sheep hear my voice.

Right? And I get to hear it through Scripture, I do, in so many different ways by the Holy Spirit and all this other stuff. But I actually ask, I have certain questions I love to ask him. I like to ask him, what are you praying for me? Yeah.

Yeah. Bill's looking up. Praying for you, Robbie. Listen, I'm trying to get you to listen.

Look over there, Robbie. You know, stopping. But anyway, so as you're entering into this season, you know, what flips your switch? What makes it seem like Christmas to you? I would love to hear it.

866-348-7884, 866-34-TRUTH. You know, it's just me, Bill. I read this that said we were supposed to set our scales back 15 pounds right before Thanksgiving.

It's the food in December that messes with me the most. So it's kind of like daylight savings time for our scales. Set your scales back 15 pounds. That's a good idea. I like that.

I tell you, what I really need to do is to set the scales up about two and a half feet. So I've got to step way up, step way back down. Well, think about that. It's a feast, right?

Yes. It's a feast for Thanksgiving. It's a feast for Christmas. Because there's no doubt in my mind he wants us to delight in him. And he wants us to delight in fellowship, right? Because when you're feasting at Thanksgiving, who are you doing that with?

God. And your family, which is dear to you, right? I'm almost positive sweet potato casserole and manna are the same thing. Well, that's sweet. Do you like that that much?

Really? Oh, yes. I could have marshmallow and nuts. After about 30 servings through Christmas, I've done for about 11 months. But, oh, I love it in the end of November and December. So, another thing that, you know, obviously it is the Christian Car Guy show. And so, you know, one of the things that to me is really, really fun, as we're talking about, is the idea of fellowship, right? At Christmas, you're going to have a feast with who? Your family, the people that are close to you, right? Church groups have a lot of fellowships.

Right. A lot of the different groups I'm with. I have two parties this weekend.

My Sunday school, my special needs Sunday school class is tonight. And then tomorrow is a masculine journey. And as we feast together, right? But one of the cool things is if you're in your car going to – on some adventure to see some family member, this is a great opportunity to play.

You bump the intro? Right. Well, you know, to play games like I Spy, something green. Or, you know, the alphabet game. Or, you know – but one of the things that, you know, and I love to travel in the car with my family.

The worst thing that can happen is they get on their phones, okay? So what we have to do is we have to come up with something that we fellowship together in the car, right, to make the most out of the journey. And of course, you know me. I love to sing. And I don't sing well, but I love to sing. And so in my car, it's not unusual for us to, you know, sing Christmas carols, right?

With your family, did you ever do that, Bill? Yeah, I have told people for years my kids would take a collection to keep me from singing at church. But do you sing Christmas carols in your car? Only if I'm by myself, and it's playing on the radio. You know, even with your own kids, you won't sing? Like I said, they took a collection to keep me from singing. So, you know, those are some precious, precious memory of singing those songs with my mother and father. And oh, when we were in the car, I mean, they had to keep four of us, you know, from throwing each other out the window and all that stuff.

So, you know, what do you do to make it a delight in the car? 866-348-7884. Somebody's calling in.

I'd love to hear from you. We've got so much more Christian Car Guy show coming up. That is, well, you're listening to the Christian Car Guy show, but that's Brandon Lake with his song Gratitude, which if you want to just be blown out of your mind, the Chosen with the, I think it's called Christmas with the Chosen, that's in theaters right now. It was originally got all sold out when we went to get tickets for originally.

My wife and I went to see it Thursday night, but oh my goodness, it's in theaters right now. And when Brandon Lake sings that song, so it's a concert with different wonderful artists, but then they have a new episode of the Chosen that you can see, which is spectacular, has to do with the birth of Christ. But I can tell you, Bill, I've worshiped in my life, I've been in some amazing things. But when we were in this experience of Christmas with the Chosen, when Brandon Lake sang that song, my eyes didn't just cry tears, they gushed. Have you ever had that happen? I don't remember that happening, no, sir. I mean, they literally were gushing. I was like, oh my gosh, and my wife was very emotional, but it's just a beautiful thing.

And so if you have a chance to go see that, oh man, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Christmas with the Chosen, I wanted to say that. But as you're thinking about your Christmas, we have Ms. Ward, she's going to share something with us here today. Ms. Ward, you're on the Christian Car Guys show, good morning. Hey, how you doing, brother? I mean, how are you?

I'm so glad to hear from you again what you got for us today. Oh, well, well, you guys know I've been having some car problems, but I had someone to drive me around. And the person that I drove around, I had been ministering to.

Really? Yes, and then it turned into, would you please talk to my cousin because he's in trouble. So and then I'm like, yes, I'll talk, this just happened just yesterday. So I ended up talking to him and ministering to him, and this young man, he's in great despair. He doesn't see what the life to live anymore, he doesn't have that will to live anymore, and he was bound with drugs and things like that. And I understood that type of life, and I told him I prayed with him and I shared the scriptures with him.

But he just couldn't see how Christmas relate to everything. And I said, Well, first of all, you have to give your life to Christ. And the gift that keeps on giving, which God did keep giving me is the self light inside of us to continue to unite and tell other people.

So that's what I did yesterday. And I want you to pray for this young man, his name is Tony. And hopefully he makes it to the facility where he was going to get cleansed again.

And I told him he has to start a fresh and new, get restarted, rebooted, you know, in Christ Jesus. And that's the greatest gift I could give him on yesterday. And I have a song.

I hope I have time to sing it. Darrell Bock Yeah, well, let's pray for Tony real quick, and then you can sing, okay? So, Jesus, thank you. What a way to share the light, really, Ms. Ward.

So God, thank you, Jesus, wonderful. I'm so grateful for Ms. Ward and her opportunity that you gave her to share you with Tony. And we pray that the seeds that have been planted, the ones that you've been planting in his life, all his life, Lord, that he would find water for them, that he would thirst, that he would hunger for you, and that he would see light in a new way this season. Lord, we pray that you would save his soul. And I thank you for a chance to pray for Tony with Ms. Ward, in Jesus' name I pray.

So yes, Ms. Ward, if you've got a song, we would love to hear it. Ms. Ward Okay, it's a song to the nation, you know, it's something God's given me. For God so loved the world that he gave his own son.

Yes, he curses each and every one. He redeemed us by his blood. Oh, every heart shall humble of the mention of his name.

Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is King. He came to his own, but his own received him not. He gave you his greatest gift. He gave his all in all. I gave you, he said, I gave you my greatest gift. And I gave my all in all. I gave you my perfect love.

I gave you me. And still you doubt, oh yes, and still you doubt. I am that I am that I am that I am, oh and still you doubt, oh yes, and still you doubt.

I am that I am that I am that I am. He's just saying he is and he is and he is the light. Everything else is shadows of him. He is the gift of him.

That's a beautiful way to put that Bill. Everything else is a shadow of him because he is the light. Bill So glad you called in, you just brightened up the whole show.

Toni I was nervous about it, I was like, oh God, why? Because he always has, and I told you he started my ministry to ignite through your radio program for whatever reason. I don't understand all that, but you know, all things working together.

Bill Oh, they do, they do. And I'm so grateful for your calling in and sharing Toni, because I'm going to be praying. That is so wonderful. So wonderful.

Toni Thank you. I thought you guys would appreciate that, you know, like we're talking about a precious life here. Bill Oh, that's exactly the message, right? That Jesus said, you know, go share the light.

I mean, that's the deal. We're the messengers of that light, and he lit it in us. And so we get a chance to share it, and it's just, you couldn't be more clear. Thank you, Miss Ward. God bless. Toni I think you started, you lit some, your light was shining too, and you was burning too.

That was the only reason I was able to even call in through the strength of what I had been listening to over the period of time. Bill Oh, thank you so much. God bless.

Bye bye. So, you know, as we think about, right, we get a chance to share the light in so many different ways and in trees, or in song, you know, isn't it interesting in food? Well, you brought it up.

Bill Yes. Now, what we need to do is to make sure we're mentioning Jesus through all these wonderful interactions that we're doing. And we don't focus on the presence. We need to focus on, boy, my life was changed, and the instances where I talked to God, and the instances where I heard him, and to tell people that life is more wonderful when you've got Jesus in your heart. Darrell Yeah, it is the larger story. In other words, we can get caught up in the little story of all the craziness that's going on right this minute, or the huge story that God is, he is redeeming his bride, he is rescuing us all, he is taking us back to this place of complete enchantment, this place of beauty, where every single sense will be in delight, right?

Whether that's a sense of taste, or a sense of sound, or a sense of smell, or, you know, just what, you know, the light itself represents. David We've got to focus on the salvation part of Jesus. We've got to focus on more people being part of the family.

Darrell Oh, that's beautiful. And that is a wonderful season to do it, because it is darker in December. It just is. And it's a time where people are a little hungrier for light. And so this is the opportunity.

And you can do that in so many different ways. We're going to be praying. And I thank you so much for listening today for sharing. David It's always a pleasure to come on, and we're so glad you tuned in today. Darrell Merry Christmas. And remember, slow down, of course, Jesus walked everywhere he went, got it all done in 33 years, and we could not be more blessed that you continue to listen to Christian Car Guy Show. And oh yeah, I've got a podcast every day now at ChristianCarGuy.com. You can listen on the 119th Psalm, I'm going through that verse by verse. Thanks for listening. David Merry Christmas.
