For some, the Christmas season is one of happiness. For others, it is one marked by grief. Perhaps you yourself are finding it hard to get through this season. But the hope that we have before us in our passage is that no matter what trials this life brings and what you may be facing right now, there is a guaranteed eternity of everlasting joy for the believer in Jesus Christ. There is coming a day when there will be no more sorrow and no more sin. There will be unbroken communion and fellowship with God. Whether you are joyful, sorrowing, or some of both, this is your great and eternal hope.
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, won’t you see this hope and flee to Him? He is the One who was born of a virgin, lived without sin, died on behalf of His people and offers you His very own righteousness as your robe. He offers you Himself.
