Minus presents under the Christmas tree, minus the gathering of friends and family, and minus even holiday food delicacies, the simple beautiful message on Christmas is that God’s love prevails. The realization that God loves each of us so much, that He sent His own Son to save us affects deeply each heart that earnestly searches for Him.
To find goodness and hope as the world decays into more hatred and cynicism, we need only to look unto that Babe born in a manger. Though Jesus Christ is not a babe any more.
“”And when these things begin to come to pass, “
then look up and lift up your heads;
for your redemption draweth nigh.”
