Dear People of God:
For ages the people of God waited for the coming of the Messiah. And now that he has come and we have tasted the goodness of the kingdom of God we cannot but long for the completion of what was inaugurated by his first coming.
Christmas introduced us to Jesus and he increases our longing for the fullness of God. We cannot be satisfied with only the victory of the Cross and the Resurrection. These victories of Jesus are a foretaste of what to expect in his Second Coming.
This is the prophecy of Isaiah 9:7 "Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this." The zeal of the Lord becomes our zeal.
May your preparations for this Christmas create a passion and a zeal to see the Prince of Peace fill the whole earth!
