Today God made Hope a reality. The promise that so many had been holding onto for so long was realized. The truth God handed down, that He would save His people for all time was felt among the world.
The shockwaves of God’s promise intersecting the lives of men are still being felt. No more were we to wander. No more were we to feel alone in the universe. Now we could see Hope. We could talk with Hope, we could take hold of Hope.
The birth of Christ into our world, the world He created, was the birth of truth in our hearts. It was the birth of a new life for each of us. It was the birth of eternity for a people.
This truth is forever. It is for all our days ahead of us. This truth is also for now.
Jesus, The Truth, came that we may know the power of His love in these days. He intends for us to take hold of Him this day. To know redemption. To experience Joy and Peace. To know in the depths of our hearts that we are not alone now.
Take hold of this knowledge. Grasp tightly this understanding. We have Hope today. His name is Jesus.
"Paul, servant of God and messenger of Jesus Christ in the faith God gives to his chosen, in the knowledge of the truth that comes from a God-fearing life, and in the hope of the everlasting life which God, who cannot lie, promised before the beginning of time—(at the right moment he made his Word known in the declaration which has been entrusted to me by his command) to Titus, my true son in our common faith, be grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our saviour."
