Christmas Message

with one comment

In the spirit of “Call It What It Is,” I refuse to refer to this most wonderful and promising time of year as a mere “Holiday.” It’s Christmas. To wish people “Happy Holidays” seems so trivial and meaningless to me, in light of the real meaning behind Christmas.

I want to pass along what I feel is a wonderful Christmas Message which does a good job of summing up the reason for the season. This message was on the back of a Christmas card sent to me this year by Laura Allen, which was published by artist Rachel Pearsey. I assume it was written by Pearsey, although that is not clear. But no matter the origin, this states it well.

For thousands of years there was a desperate longing for the Savior to come. The prophet Isaiah described this coming Savior: He would bring light to those walking in darkness, set captives free, bind up the brokenhearted, and save His people from their sins. He would transform hearts and make them good, all for His glory and honor.

He is the hope for all peoples from every nation on earth. He is the joy of every longing heart. Jesus is the only one who satisfies. Until we turn our longing to Him and the joy He offers, we will always be disappointed and thirsty.

Merry Christmas, world. The Christmas Story… “it’s a good story…”
