    His Birth was Hope.

    The Cross was Price.

    His Rising was Proof.

    His Spirit is Testimony.

    What other signs and wonders do we need lest we call ourselves unbelievers? Might we be like the Nobleman in Jesus’ day who urged Him to heal his sick son, at which urging Jesus replied “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe”, but healed the man’s son anyway without ever seeing or touching him? Or maybe like the people and religious leaders of Jesus’ time here whom He wept over and said “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes”, but He came and then died for our sakes exactly as the prophets had foretold nonetheless?

    Yet, here we are once again, over two-thousand years later, celebrating His birth. Celebrating the idea of that initial Hope that continues to endure to this day. The Light that was brought down from Heaven to dwell with us on Earth. The only Hope of salvation, reclamation and reunion with the Father. We cling to that Hope. We cling to Him. Why? Because, we always have, and will continue to have Hope. To hold steadfastly onto the knowledge that Jesus Christ is exactly what His Word tells us He is. Without that, we are empty, lost and stumble in the dark…

    So, I ask again, what other signs and wonders do we need other than the innermost, personal, secure knowledge that all of us celebrating His birth today have?

    He came.

    He’s still here.

    He always will be.

    What more do we need?

    “And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

    I say “yes and Amen Lord”. May faith shout out from every fiber of our beings. Albeit, though some days it as tiny as a mustard seed, most others, it consumes us with unbounded love, joy and hope as this, Your gift to us, promises every year until even the end of the age.


    Scripture references: John 4:48, Luke 19:41-42, Luke 18:7-8, Matthew 28:20
