Theme = ‘christmas’
May we be a people of ‘one thing’: Jesus Christ, the true light that shines in the darkness.
Let’s wake up like the shepherds and give thanks to God for sending his Son to be our Rescuer.
If you feel the darkness close by this Christmas, I encourage you to turn to Jesus, the true light that gives light to everyone.
God doesn’t want an impressive appearance, power, or prestige – he wants something far more important: a humble, obedient, and willing heart.
In Jesus God comes to us, so he can be with us, and we with him - this is peace.
God still works through the unexpected today - through surprise, and through wonder.
No matter how full, busy, noisy and bright our Christmases might be, without Jesus there is something missing. Without Jesus, Christmas may as well be empty, dark and silent.
We may not know what the future holds - but we know who holds the future.
My prayer is that we might all make space for Jesus this Christmas - and then in January, in February and beyond.
The gift of God’s own Son takes a lifetime to unwrap, but it’s never too early to start.
