Christmas Emotions (8)

One emotion that many people experience at Christmas is hope. Hope means that we expect God to keep His promises.
Without Jesus, we have no hope. We are lost and forever separated from God. But Jesus was born to give us hope. Jesus chose to leave heaven and come to earth as a human baby. He chose to live as a man and die on the cross. Because Jesus died, we don’t need to be separated from God.
Through Jesus, we have the hope of forgiveness and eternal life. We can be sure that God will make these things happen. And this hope gives us strength to continue serving God every day.
Verse 7 of today’s Bible Reading says, “So, Master [God], what hope do I have? You are my hope.” God is your hope through this Christmas season and every day of the year. Trust and follow Him today.
