The Savior our Hope

IMG_8350The Savior has come.

Words spoken every year around this time.

The Savior has come.

Words that often pass through me without effect.

The Savior has come.

Words that hold truth that changed the world.

The Savior has come.

Words that continue to change the world.

The Savior has come.

And we… I, so often miss it.

The Savior, my Savior, the hope of the world has come.

He came out of love for the world and for people; for you and for me.

The Savior has come.

He entered into the darkness and he brought salvation’s light.

The Savior has come.

He rescues us from the lies and ties and agreements we’ve made with that which kills, steals and destroys.

He rescues us from the pit.

He lifts us out of the darkest night.

He holds us in the surrounding destruction and whispers His truth over us.

The Savior has come.

The Savior has come

and

it

is

good.

The story told at Christmas time is a salvation story. It is not an easy story. It is not a comfortable story. It is not a story filled with consumption. Nor is it a story of selfish ambition.

The story told at Christmas is a salvation story.

The story is a selfless story.

The story is an uncomfortable story.

The story is an awe inspiring story.

The Savior.

The Messiah.

The hope of the world, came.

He came!

He entered into the darkness – in the most delicate of forms – breathed human breath, depended on a human for sustenance, and though he was the very definition of life, needed a human’s care to live. His life, brought life. His life, was the light of all people.His life is the very way and truth and He is salvation. He is life. This tiny little baby, the center point of the story, Jesus, was the promise fulfilled… the hope of the world.

The unexpected but long expected Savior had come.

Jesus, the Savior continues to come.

The Savior meets us in our darkness.

The Savior meets us in our hopeless state.

The Savior meets the oppressed.

The Savior meets the hurting.

The Savior meets us with rescue.

The Savior, the hope of the world, Jesus, has come, He is here.

Do you see Him?

Do you believe?

Do you long for him?

Your hope has come. Your salvation is here.

Breathe in His truth. Soak in His hope and taste His salvation.
