A Season of True Hope

December 4, 2018

In this season of true hope, the hope that is forever sealed as a marker of time. One that 2,018 years ago a Savior was born. Not just any Savior but the Christ, one that un-doubtable changed the way, us as in the human race look at the free world, no matter what race, religion, belief, clan or tribe. Our culture, forever, has been marked in history by the influence and teachings of Yeshua or more often known as Jesus the Christ. Born to a virgin mother, adopted by a carpenter, raised by a heavenly Father and put to death by the human race in which He came to bring the gift of everlasting life. Many like to point the finger to a certain group of people for the death of Jesus but we were all created by God and descendants of the First man, Adam.“The wages of sin equals death” and by our actions for us to know eternal life, Christ became sin and died for each and every one of us because of our actions.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

Christmas is a season of joy and hope, one that should be celebrated for its meaning and promise. At times in each of our lives we find ourselves entertaining this season in exclusion of Christ through an earthly lens. To many it can be a season of loss and sadness when life’s expectations have left them stranded and they try to live a life alone without the Lord to walk beside them. People start to realize truly how alone they are and cannot bare the moments of void. Jesus came to be that divide, He came to fill the gaps with peace and humility. Yeshua the master carpenter came to rebuild hope through the tearing down of prides foundational walls within our lives. One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor. Proverbs 29:23

Many are born again and find out that the old still exists within. They fall into frustration and falsehoods by the devil,since they realize that evil or sin still exist. This alone battles the foundational principles that Jesus has laid on their hearts when they accepted Him as their Savior. Yeshua never stated that washing our robes would be easy and that taking off the old by placing on the new would be clear and simple. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12

During this season of advent remembering the true meaning and following through with the example of a Christ led life can mean the world of difference in our homes, churches and places of work. We are the light on a hill which has been placed for everyone to see as a beacon of hope. Because we have found the Hope which proves Grace in a dark and lonely world. One that’s says, “come as you are, you weary and broken child”

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:19

Remember this year as you look upon the nativity scene, we are all created by a loving God for a specific purpose. A God who all along had a plan for the existence of His who are made in His image. To live for anything less is a life lived insufficient.
