This Christmas marks a new reality in my home; we’ll be without our boys or extended family on Christmas Day. The boys are on the West coast and can’t get time off from work and we can’t go anywhere else because of our commitments here. As the holidays do for many of us, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic, thinking about loved ones both past and present and longing for a celebration when we will all be together again.
I’m reminded God feels the same way about us. This Christmas season we’re celebrating is His solution to the longing He feels to be with His family. Christmas, the celebration of God taking the form of man, leads inevitably to Easter, the celebration of God’s sacrifice for our sins. One day we will celebrate the birth and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus, face to face with Him. My Bible says it going to be quite a celebration.
And as the year winds down, remember what happens every day at the Journey is only possible because listeners just like you are financial supporters. If you are blessed by what you hear and appreciate the ministry of The Journey, know it happens only when you are involved.
