Season of Hope

December 22, 2011 at 7:48 pm Leave a comment

The birth of one child brought hope to the entire world.Limited few knew the impact that this infant would have. Wise men diligently awaiting His birth knew. As did prophets of old. Angels herald news of His birth to shepherds,who then knew that this child was important. What the few in Bethlehem knew then, is now known throughout the world. His birth which was followed by His exemplary life followed by his triumphant death saved the world and gives us hope today.

This time of year is when we celebrate His birth. To me we are in essence renewing our hope. Everything looks a bit brighter and the future not so bleak. We, hopefully, forgive past trespasses and give with a lighter heart. Lights brighten up the darkest time of the year and children’s faces shine with the Spirit of the season. Hope is everywhere and it is all possible because of the birth of the Christ child.

The reason we celebrate His birth, is because of what His death accomplished. We “have hope through the atonement of Christ…” (Moroni 7:41). Is it no wonder then why the celebration of His birth is a season of hope. It is because of our faith in Him that we can have hope. His wondrous birth and life provides hope for all ages.
