In a year when the thrill of hope seems like a memory from another time;
In a season when we can collectively understand what a weary world feels like;
In a moment in history when all eyes are straining toward the promises of tomorrow;
We take time to reflect.
We reflect on that historic night, when angels’ mouths were unleashed to wake up creation to the birth of the Savior; the night when overlooked and isolated men became the first to receive the news we now celebrate. And perhaps we realize that the response to receiving that news has always been the same…to go. And like the shepherds, the only destination for those who hear and believe is the feet of Jesus.
May the message of hope still thrill you.
May your weariness give out underneath your rejoicing.
May you lose your breath at the first glimpse of His new and glorious morning.
May your worship be so overwhelming that standing is not an option.
May your ears hear only His praises.
May the truth of that moment, that night, change everything.
Merry Christmas from your Velvet Ashes family
