Time to Go Home

Christmas is not just about remembering an event that took place 2,000 years ago – it provides a picture of what is to come. Recounting the story of Christ’s birth fills us with hope and expectation for Christ’s return, when God’s kingdom will come in all its fullness.

Everything She Had

Although her gift was miniscule in comparison to the donations by the much wealthier people who made a big show of putting large sums of money into the offering plates, Jesus said that a poor widow “has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury.” (Mark 12:43).

Every Tear

The visions in Isaiah and Revelation of God wiping away every tear from our eyes look forward to that future day when Christ will return and we will be gathered together with our friends and loved ones and those who have gone on before us.
