Bible Text: Luke 2: 1-20 |


What if there was no Christmas?  What if Christ had not come, along with the hope, peace, joy and love that he brings?  The resurrected, living hope in Jesus (I Peter 1:3-4), that’s an anchor for our soul (Hebrews 6:19), would not exist.  Peace, overall well being, harmonious relationships with God and people, peace on earth, would only be there stuff of fairy tales.  There would be no joy in being rescued from a life or death situation. There would be no “good new of great joy” if a Savior wasn’t born.  If Christ hadn’t come we would not be the recipients of God’s extravagant love (Romans 5:7-8).  But Christ did come!  He was committed to coming because He loves sinners!  Ponder and treasure Christmas with a heart of love for the Christ child.
