Let me give you two truths that will help you see good in this last year. Think of them as glasses you can use to correct your vision as you look back over 2020.
We may think that our world is messed up, but it was even more messed up over 2,000 years ago when Jesus was born.
Those stars on the Christmas tree don’t just remind us of an inspiring legend, though. They call attention to an actual, historical event.
The back of that rug reminds me of what my life looks like to me at times. Even a Christian’s life often makes little sense when we look at it from the underside.
It looked like God had taken them on a dead-end road. Water was spread out in front of them, and cliffs loomed on either side.
Jesus made it clear that, above all else, God wants and deserves our affection, not just displays of external religion.
I want to include an important warning. God’s promise in Romans 8:28 does NOT apply to everyone.
You may be wondering why we should study a book that was written over 2,000 years ago. Can we even know if Luke’s account of the life of Christ is reliable after all these many years?
Doesn’t it feel good when you can make a difference in someone else’s life? Although it’s nice when someone does something to help us, it feels even better when we can help someone who needs it.
We need a hope that is real, and we need it now!
