“The Hope of the World
Christmas begins in God’s heart,
It’s complete when it reaches the heart of man
with love and understanding.
How do you stop yourself from feeling helpless in uncertain times? One way a family member of mine stopped getting seasick when I was on board a navy ship for the first time. A senior naval officer had advised Chris, “Don’t look at the waves around you. Look at the horizon far away. Look at that stable, stationary line and you will feel better.” When I fixed my eyes on that unshakable, unwavering line, even though the ship bobbed up and down in the rough sea, I did not feel so seasick anymore.
Don’t look at the waves of circumstances happening all around you, instead, look at the unshakable Word of God. Your heart will stabilize and you will see your God supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!
According to the latest statistics, eight out of 10 victims of religious persecutions are Christians continues around the World according to FoxNews. According to the latest statistics, eight out of 10 victims of religious persecutions are Christians; and Christians are now the most persecuted Religion anywhere.
Fox news is not the only one reporting these kind of statistics. Each year, the World Watch List comes out and a new conversation begins. This year, we noticed how Christian women are especially targeted around the world. Often, they are culturally discriminated against because they are women—and when it’s discovered they follow
Jesus, the suffering can be even worse.
“Christmas is not a time or a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” — Calvin Coolidge
1. The Grinch thought, “Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps. . . means a little bit more.”
2. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. ~ 2 Corinthians 8:9
3. When we think of God, we think of the most powerful and richest being in the whole universe. Yet, our Lord Jesus was actually born into a poor family? We know this from the offering His mother Mary brought to the temple after Jesus was born, according to the Law for purification. (Luke 2:22–24) She brought a pair of turtledoves or young pigeons, which was the only type of offering the poor could afford. (Leviticus 12:2, 8)
But with Jesus in their lives, Mary and her husband Joseph didn’t remain poor. Wise men came to Jesus with treasures—“And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (Matthew 2:11)
