Ministry of Hope
It is the most wonderful time of the year! It’s Christmas season, and we are ushered into a time of celebration, and rejoicing marking the coming of the Saviour, the answer to all of our needs.
Today, we celebrate the Father of Christmas – Hope. It’s appropriate to focus on the young in our midst, our Sunday Schoolers. They remind us to be child-like in our approach to the Lord, to ever be ready to enter into His presence with praise, joy and thanksgiving. Today, we all salute the faithful and tireless work of the Children’s Church teachers, and the very willing parents that help them in protecting and caring for our little ones. Kid’s Life is a picture of God’s constant call to us to never forget that we are His children, and that He looks after our best interest at all times.
The Father of Christmas leads us into a life and ministry of hope, bringing light to our world, to show and lead the lost to the Saviour of the world. Our first call is to love people around us, to preach by our life the message of hope that is in Christ Jesus. Every person deserves to know the Lord in person, and that can only be accomplished by believers like you and me, living out the greatness of God’s love through the message of hope this Christmas. Let’s reach out and bring God’s colours to the world around us!
