Nothing, and no one, can grant eternity except Jesus Christ. Politics, economics, and technological break throughs can’t bring eternity. Our hope is in Christ. Much of the extra stuff has been pushed away this Christmas. It is quieter. Maybe it is quiet enough that we can hear him, remember why we do this, and the significance of Christmas. We need Jesus. It’s a reality. Are we ready, aware, open, and grateful to the gift of salvation being offered today?
