Celebrating Jesus, God's Greatest Gift
Christmas celebrates the hope that God sent Jesus to fulfill his promise and rescue creation once and for all.
We can have hope because God keeps his promises.
We kick off Christmas with one of the most hopeful passages in the Old Testament. In Isaiah 9:6, we read, A child will be born to us. A son will be given to us. He will rule over us. And he will be called Wonderful Adviser and Mighty God. He will also be called Father Who Lives Forever and Prince Who Brings Peace, (NIrV). As God’s people were about to head into exile, God delivered hope through a promise. Someday, this will all be over—a King would come who would make all things new. Christmas celebrates the hope that God sent Jesus to fulfill that promise and rescue creation once and for all.
We can have hope because God keeps His promises. Throughout the Bible, we see time and again how God followed through on what he promised his people. Knowing that God has kept his promises in the past, gives us hope that God will continue keeping his promises in the future. In a world of uncertainty, we pray that your child discovers the hope that through Jesus, God is making all things new.
