1 Peter 3:8-12
Philemon The weary world rejoices, for in being reconciled to God in Christ, we are also reconciled to one another in Christ, so sharing in mutual fellowship with all those who belong to Christ, no matter how different they are or appear to be.
1 John 3 In this passage, the apostle John notes three key truth’s about God’s love that are revealed in the Christmas narrative: love was always God’s intention, love is freely gifted, and love is demonstrated to others.
Hebrews 4:14-5:3 At so many levels, we live in a weary world. We are all looking for a way out of this situation but our only real hope is in the One who transcends our reality because he lives eternally in heaven. In Christ, God has entered our weary world to redeem it and will one day renew the whole creation. What a glorious hope to rejoice in as we celebrate Christmas!
1 Peter 3:1-12
Esther 8-10 The final chapters of the Book of Esther record a great reversal in fortunes for the Jewish people – events which are celebrated to this day in the Jewish festival of Purim. The Unseen God comes through to miraculously deliver his people. But in Christ, God has both made himself visible and intervened in history to deliver us, and God’s great triumph through Christ is to be celebrated eternally!
