“The message of Christianity is…Things really are this bad, and we can’t heal or save ourselves. Things really are this dark – nevertheless, there is hope. The Christmas message is that on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. Notice that it doesn’t say from the world a light had sprung, but upon the world a light has dawned. It has come from outside. There is light outside of this world, and Jesus has brought that light to save us; indeed, he is the Light (John 8:12).” Hidden Christmas by Timothy Keller
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
May you have a blessed Christmas and New Year’s!
