HELLO FRIENDS: 12.26.13 – Unto You Is Born…Hope

Hello Friends,

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11

Last week I began looking at the phrase “UNTO YOU IS BORN.” Here is part two…Unto You Is BornHOPE

Everyone has a rope.

Some are of great length and some are quite short.

But all of them have an end and everyone will get to it someday.

Please know that Jesus is there. At the end of the rope where all is seemingly gone awaits the One that all purpose springs from. The originator and dispenser of righteous anticipation holds out his nail-driven hand to a weary, downcast humanity. He eagerly desires to pull you to his sword-pierced side and embrace you with arms of love.

Don’t look away.  Rather, draw near and receive from Him what no degree of struggle could ever produce with any longevity…HOPE.


Pastor John

P.S.  Over the next three weeks I will be expanding on the theme of “UNTO YOU IS BORN.”  Keep an eye open for these HELLO FRIENDS emails.  Next week: Unto You Is Born…CLARITY.
