But Jesus said, “Don’t you know there are other places I must go and offer the hope of God’s kingdom?This is what I have been sent to do.”Luke 4:43, The Passion Translation
The hope of God’s kingdom arrived.
He was the heart of heaven, wrapped in a blanket and placed in a manger.
He was the man who touched the sick, reached out to the outcast and raised the dead.
He was the sacrificial lamb who laid down His life so we could be reconciled with God.
He is the Savior who defeated death and rose to eternal life.
He is the Lord who sits at the right hand of God in the heavenly realms.
He is the Resurrection and the Life for all who would dare to trust Him and wild enough to embrace His radical love.
He is Jesus.
He is hope.
He is the heartbeat of hope that beats through the season of Christmas.
Two days til Christmas…
