It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
One of the treasured traditions of this season is being able to sing uplifting Christmas carols… songs about Jesus’ birth… songs about peace and goodwill. (And the silver lining to worshipping together virtually is that we can all sing along to the music to our hearts’ content!)
One such Christmas carol, “O Holy Night”, reminds us that Jesus was the hope that the people were longing for.
“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn”
Jesus entered into our troubled and weary world over 2,000 years ago… and his name was called “Emmanuel”… “God with us”. The blessing of every Christmas is that Jesus is with us still… that the foundation of true hope is found in Jesus… Jesus is the source and reason for our hope.
As we enter into the season of waiting for the celebration of Jesus’ birthday, join us in anticipation and hope…hope because of the coming of the Christ Child…the Saviour of the world.
And the word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a Father’s only son, full of grace and truth. John 1: 14
