Ever wonder as a kid how Santa made it to every home around the world in one night or how the tooth fairy got into your room and under your pillow without anyone knowing? Probably not, until someone decided to reveal the “secret” that neither entity is real.
There’s a billboard in Times Square that suggests that the coming of Jesus is a myth. I guess folks are trying to reveal their “secret” to the rest of us. Why is this so important to them that they’d spend that kind of money to post their views for all to see?
Here in Newtown the vast majority of us are praying. We want God to be with us. We’re not ashamed or hesitant to cry out to God for help.
I’m praying to understand how I can be of the most help myself. The answer I get over and over is to love as I’ve been loved by God. If the thousands of us that live in this community would answer that call I believe we will heal and be strong in the face of evil.
Jesus came to bring good news. He came to proclaim that captives will be released, the blind will see, the oppressed will be set free and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come. He is doing those very things today by His Spirit and through His people. Be one of His and show the world what He’s like.
“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,
which means ‘God is with us.’”
