It's Over

And like that, it is gone. The day has passed. All the preparations and anticipation in many ways culminating to that final party, that last gift, and those concluding handfuls of Chex-Mix. My neighbors have taken down their always-anticipated "yard show." The radio station has ceased its continual mixture of nostalgic carols. And our tree sadly sheds as it awaits its demise.

Are you feeling uplifted? Sorry. Though I love the anticipation of Christmas, as we close the pages of 2009 I rejoice in the truth of Christmas. Our Savior has been born. Hallelujah. God did not leave us in our depravity. He pursued us. He made a way for our redemption. And not only that, this Jesus--after He rose from the dead--promised that He was going to prepare a place for those who believe. And if He goes to prepare a place, then He will return. He will return. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

Christmas day has passed but may we set our eyes above, on the promises to come--looking with anticipation for that glorious day of reunion. No more tears. No more hurt feelings. No more sickness. No more death. No more frustrations or misunderstandings. No more betrayal. No more...enemy. Our Lord will return--this time with a shout. Maranatha.
