I Peter 1:3-4
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you.
Who is it that waits to be born in Bethlehem?
He is the living hope; a hope that is alive in our hearts; a hope that causes a deep joy to reside in us despite our circumstances; a hope that is certain and cannot be taken away; a hope that cannot be kept secret, that has to be shared; a hope that is a light in the darkness to those who are searching.
A hope that never perishes, never spoils, never fades.
The Hope of the World waits to be born in Bethlehem.
May the love of Christ be with you,
Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
