When holly wreaths are hanging upon each friendly door
And candles glow from windows
and trees are trimmed once more,
It’s pleasant to be sending this special wish to you
For all the season’s happiness in everything you do.
Jesus said, Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
One of God’s greatest gifts to us, especially at Christmastime, is the gift of others, Family friends, coworkers, neighbors, fellow believers, even strangers come together in a special way for the holidays.
What do you imagine would happen if these things were commonplace all year? Everyone would express their love and devotion to one another.
This is the type of world God had in mind from the beginning. He always meant for us to live together in peace, for love to reign in our hearts and relationships, for goodwill to mark all our interactions.
When the tiny baby was born in Bethlehem, He was designated the Prince of Peace because He would bring to our hearts what was sos badly needed int he world.
Looking forward to the day all things are set right and we live in peace in the kingdom of God.
