Christmas will be so very different for so many this year.
Our gatherings will be smaller, quieter or possibly alone because of this virus and we all look forward to the family traditions that make Christmas feel like Christmas. Maybe this year we will look less to the family traditions to make Christmas feel right and look to the heart of it. The why of it. The promise of it.
The heart of Christmas is hope for the world in Jesus.
The why of Christmas is because God didn’t want heaven without you.
The promise of Christmas is that no matter who you are, Jesus came so that you could be in a thriving relationship with God today and for every day after until you step into eternity.
Christmas will look different this year but is may also mean more to us because of it.
