Christmas

No Disappointment Here

But when the kindness and love of God our Saviour appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. Titus 3:4-5

You’ve probably all heard the following lyrics: “He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.” Santa has become known for rewarding the good and punishing the bad. After all, this is the way the world works and Santa is a very worldly guy. 

Real Comfort

What if you believed that this Christmas you would receive “double for all your sins.” Would you find that comforting? You might say, “That depends … double what?” If it were double the punishment, then you would surely not take comfort. However, as God proclaims the coming of the Saviour of the world through the words of Isaiah, He brings comfort indeed.
