As you may know, most of my life I’ve been a Scrooge about Christmas. While I still sometimes struggle with that, I’m a lot better. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I’m growing in Christ, maybe Anna’s Christmas spirit is transforming me or it could be that I’m no longer a pastor with all the work a pastor has to do at Christmas.

I suspect that, if the innkeeper had known the whole story, he would have made room in his inn. If he was savvy in marketing, he could have made a buck or two on it. If he really knew, he could have created a “Jesus Suite” and advertised it in the newspapers…maybe even put up a bronze plaque that read: “Jesus was born here.”

Sometimes, I think, we forget the incredible freshness and joy of being a new creation. My old car was functional. Cars have a purpose, to get you from one place to another. The old car did that. Life can be functional too. A comma on a gravestone between the birthday and the death-day says everything that is needful. It can be functional in the same way an old car is functional.

Do you have hope? I believe with my whole being that our Christian hope is as solid as the rock on which it’s grounded—the resurrected Christ.  As Christians, we’re born to a living hope. The soft sound of sandaled feet is as real today as it was in the first century.  The One who conquered death is our great hope, and he has secured for us a great future.
