A Season of Wonders


A Season of Wonders:

"Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool." (Isaiah 1:18)

It's officially the season of flurries and fellowship, when families gather around and snow freshly blankets the ground. Cold, gruelling winds blow, but the warmth of this hope of joy we have in Christ kindles ever so comfortingly inside our cheerful hearts.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness" (Galatians 5:22)

"Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged" (Isaiah 60:5a)

May this season of wonders ring in a renewed sense of hope, as the dew of our Designer refreshes all parched souls. May nearness to the Holy One whom we celebrate this blessed season capture your heart once again.

"We’re ready to study God, eager for God-knowledge. As sure as dawn breaks, so sure is his daily arrival. He comes as rain comes, as spring rain refreshing the ground." (Hosea 6:1-3 MSG)

May the splendour of our great and glorious God dawn on your spirit as you ponder with thanks the wonder that is salvation in Christ the Messiah. Oh how He came down and met us in our misery with His majesty! Hallelujah! What a reason to celebrate this season flooded with awe and beauty!
