This is certainly appropriate for reblogging this time of year. Thank you.
This is the season to grab a firm hold again onto the hope that is ours! Let’s choose to focus on the most amazing gift that was given to us by our loving God. That will calm our hearts and brighten our spirits!
The Christmas message is that there is hope for a ruined humanity–hope of pardon, hope of peace with God, hope of glory–because at the Father’s will Jesus became poor, and was born in a stable so that thirty years later He might hang on a cross.
J. I. Packer
“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.”
