You came to us so that we could have hope, so that we could know love and so that we could have You, the light of the world, throughout every moment of time. You came to share the truth that this world is not our home and that sin and death can’t keep us from experiencing a love that surpasses all understanding. The birth of the Living God, who stepped into our world and walked this earth as one of us, was just the beginning of a love story that has no ending and no good byes.
Today, You are still right beside us. You hear each joyful laugh and see each tear. Throughout the wreckage of time, You are the constant that connects each generation and nation because You are the God that stand with us and shields us against the storms of life. You are the God that showers mercy and grace over a world of condemnation and judgment. You are the God that shares in our story one scarred hand to the other. May we know You as You know us.
