Our Real Hope & Purpose Of Christmas
Many are searching for hope and purpose in this holiday season. Too often, the holidays can become so busy, overtaken with obligatory demands, traditions, and expectations that we can lose the real focus of Christmas and its purpose. Our culture is especially trying hard to take Jesus out of CHRISTmas and put our focus on other things/idols. You can’t even find a nativity stamp or anything with Jesus at the postal office.
In my recent podcast episode of Created To Thrive, my husband, Fred joins me to discuss the real hope we have and the original purpose of Christmas, and how Jesus came to redeem and reconcile us back to having a deep and meaningful relationship with our Creator.
Jesus is the real hope in which we celebrate this season. He is how why can receive peace with God and His good will toward mankind, and then we are to share that love with others.
We discuss how to change our focus to be upon God’s original intention, which is “God with us”— Emmanuel. Jesus is the gift God gave to allow us to have relationship with Him, as it was in the beginning, in the Garden of Eden.
