Hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may about in hope. Rom. 15:13

Christmas is about hope. In the cultural context of Jesus birth, the Jews hoped for a Messiah for a very long time and angels announced Him “born to you in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord.”
In a universal context “God so loved the world” that Jesus came as an expression of that love and angels announced “Peace on earth, goodwill towards humankind.”
Peace and goodwill are rooted in love and hope, not in our various political and religious beliefs or in what we expect to accomplish through those constructs.

God who is Love, I turn my hopes toward You.
