A Season of Hope

A Season of Hope

One of the best things about Christmas is the sense of hope. There are songs about good tidings. Generosity seems to abound. Families and old friends reconnect. People are generally nicer and happier—unless you are Christmas shopping.

All of this seems to be built into the season. Even those without any strong religion gets sucked into the festivities. Movies abound that tug at the hearts strings to believe in the benefits of goodness.

I believe this is the intended purpose of Christmas. It is a season of hope. The birth of the Christ-child gave us hope (Ephesians 2:12). Hope marinates this time of year because it is the celebration of Jesus in the world – God with us. Thank Him for His intervention. Christ has come!

May the love of Christ fill every part of your season that hope may abound.

    was Jesus really born on 25th Dec/Christmas? support with Scripture pls. God bless u.

    • Dear Golfex,
      Thanks for visiting our site. I don’t really research such items. Not saying they don’t matter, but there are many people who have looked into it with more detail. They consider information about when the angel visited Zachariah and counting months. I like the September birthdate as it puts it near my birthday, but they might not be right either. More than likely it’s not Dec 25th since history shows this date was chosen after Constantine converted and assimilated some Christian holidays into what was Roman traditions.

      You can search Google: http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=when+was+jesus+really+born&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8. If anything, you have some interesting reading. Even if Jesus wasn’t born in December, may you still experience the joy of God entering our world.
      Blessings
