my hope Christmas

SCRIPTURE

For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

~Colossians 1:19-20

QUOTE

No human eye can hope to “see” God except to the degree that He chooses to reveal Himself in some mediated form compatible with the finitude of man or in the incarnation of His Son. The glorious good news is that the invisible God became visible in the person of Jesus.

~Sam Storm

COMMENTARY

Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. Simeon took the child in his arms and began praising God, saying…“Sovereign Lord, now let your servant die in peace, as you have promised. I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all people. He is a light to reveal God to the nations and he is the glory of your people Israel!” Then Anna [Hannah in Hebrew] came along just as Simeon was talking with Mary and Joseph, and she began praising God. The only acceptable response to the incarnation is to “Praise God!”
