Last night in our home, the family cooked a feast together, chatted and opened presents by the tree. A simple, peaceful yet merry Christmas Eve.
At times, these moments are taken for granted. This year, it felt extra precious.
In light of recent events all around the world, I really didn’t feel Christmassy at all until I started to assemble and wrap gifts. And I realized Christmas is all about blessing others! Even when the future is unsure and the world seems chaotic, we are still capable of blessing others.
2000+ years ago, a tiny baby born in a manger was sent to bless the world. This innocent child later faced betrayal, persecution and ultimately unjust death. Yet he was willing. Willing to die on a cross nakedly so that he may bring peace on earth.
Peace, is defintely what this world needs. He promised that when all is past, those who trust in Him will have peace, joy and love for eternity.
Thank you, Jesus, for blessing us with that hope.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” ~ John 3:16
