This is a wonderful meditation on the hope of Christmas from the GirlTalk blog last week and today.
What God did when he sent his Son into the world is an absolute guarantee that he will do everything he has ever promised to do. – D. Martin Lloyd-Jones
Christmas = Practical Assurance
“So the truth of the Incarnation is not just good theology; it is practical comfort and assurance. Jesus identifies with us in our humanity, and now we know that God is for us in Christ. He can be trusted. He went through torture too. When we see Jesus on the cross we can come to trust God with an unutterable trust that never for a moment considers He will not stand by us in our sufferings.” ~Os Guinness
