Reflections for Sunday, December 25, 2016: Baby Is Born — So What Now?
“Christmas comes not only to those who choose to seek it, like Simeon and Anna (Luke 2:22-38), but also to those who are indifferent and preoccupied. It invites them to share its benefits.” —Ellsworth Kalas, Christmas From The Backside
So we live, “abounding in hope,” a hope that is given substance by what God has done for us in Christ, by what he is doing now for us in Christ, and by what he still holds in store for those who trust themselves to his faithful and unchanging love. —Edmund A. Steimle, Disturbed by Joy
