My last two GM’s were a bit heavy, perhaps leaving you wondering what good there is in the world? We are a people who are doers. We are survivors. We see a problem and we want to fix it, and I’ve basically said that we can’t. The message of Christmas is that God came to fix us. Christmas is about our God, who has loved His creation, and each of us, so much that He was willing to come into our broken world to change hearts and lives, to change people from the inside out. We can’t fully comprehend that depth of love, but that is the love of our God shown to us in Jesus Christ. Our hearts need changing, and He is the only one with the power to change them. Our life is in yielding to His gracious hand. It is from this that everything else flows, and maybe some other lives will be changed by God’s love working through us.
