Bible verse: Isaiah 9
Christmas for so many is a time of incomparable joy, and for others, incomparable pain. It is a time when we get to be with family, friends, and all that is good. For that reason, it is a time when those who have lost those things feel the deepest pain. The story of Christmas reminds us that one day the King who broke through our world two millennia ago will return to bring about a world where the joys of the holidays will last forever, and the pains that it brings will be forever abolished. This Christmas, live out every day with the hope that one day we will forever live in Holiday Bliss with Jesus as our King and his government as our place of residence.
This week, be that hope in the lives of those around us and around the world by giving to the Christmas offering!
