OUR NEW HOPE

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Our Saviour was born this day years ago. But long before He was born, Prophet Isaiah prophesied the arrival of a child who would become our new hope saying, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6).

Christ was born at Christmas and through this seed, God has taken away our sin and purchased for us total pardon. The seed gave Himself up as a living sacrifice for our sake to heal the broken-hearted, to comfort those who mourn, to release the captives and defeat their enemies. In other words, Jesus is the Glorious Light who came to dispel all shades of darkness in our lives. What a great love God has for His children.

Therefore, as we mark the occasion of our Lord and Saviour’s birthday – let us remember Christmas is not only about Christ of history, it’s not only about Christ of story, or baby Jesus – it’s about Christ whom the Holy Spirit reveals to us. Meditate on this as you celebrate this special season.
