Hope Was Born


The hope that was born on Christmas continues to radiate. It envelops your heart and mine.

They shall obtain joy and gladness and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Isaiah 35:10

The black, velvety sky was clear and studded with sparkling stars that had looked down on Earth since the beginning of time. Shepherds appeared to be sitting idly by their flocks but in fact were keeping a sharp lookout for anything or anyone who might harm the sheep entrusted to their care. In the distance, the lights from the town could be seen and the noisy commotion could be heard as more people were coming into the town than the town could hold.

On the clear night air, sound traveled easily and somewhere from the direction of the village inn someone slammed a door.

And a baby cried.

The Seed of the woman, Who would open heaven’s gate and welcome any and all who place their faith in Him... had been given!

The Hope that was born that night continues to radiate down through the years until it envelops your heart and mine.
