Emmanuel

Via LifeNews.com:

“Jesus was in Isaiah’s words, ‘despised and rejected, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.’ We cannot gather at the manger with the grimy shepherds and see this tiny baby without acknowledging that over Jesus’ manger lies the shadow of the cross. It’s NOT the most wonderful time of the year in all the ways we measure wonderful, and yet in a strange way it is! It is the most wonderful time of the year not because you have to be cheery and happy and merry, but because you don’t. You can have heavy hearts, and shattered dreams, broken spirits and deep wounds. And that’s right where God comes to meet you. To comfort you, to restore you, to strengthen you, to give you peace. To die for you. to walk out of the grave for you, to hold you in the communion of the saints with those you have loved and lost. To offer you life that lasts forever. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, for Christ is born! Light and love have come. God is with us!”
