The angels came to announce good news that will cause great joy for all people. Even in the midst of the uncertain times which we have been living in this year, there is cause for great joy. God is with us. Emmanuel is born. We are not alone.
It is my prayer that as we come to the end of Advent and celebrate the coming of our Savior into this world to live among us, that you will experience God’s presence in your lives; that you will find an altogether peace, an altogether hope, an altogether love, and experience altogether joy. There is nothing in this world that will give these to us… only God can bring these into our lives. So as we celebrate this year, may you open your hearts to God’s Word and receive the good news that the baby born this Christmas morning is your Savior, our Lord, Jesus Christ. And may the words of the angels come to pass that there be “peace on earth to those on whom his favor rests.”
Merry Christmas and Blessings as we enter the coming New Year,
