A Word of Encouragement from our
Director of Missions
The holiday season brings with it many memories as well as a few expectations and hopes. For many, these days will bring memories of dear loved ones who have gone to heaven this year. Thanksgiving and Christmas will not be the same without them. Nevertheless, we can still give thanks for the years-or moments-God gave us with them. We can remind ourselves of the impact Christmas has on every believer and thank God for His salvation. For some, these days will bring memories of unusual blessing, health, renewed vitality and financial prosperity. These are also reasons to practice “thanksgiving living.” The Bible says, “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow” (James 1:17).
As for the expectations and hopes we have in this season, they will vary from person to person and family to family. You will probably ask yourself more than once, “What do you give as a Christmas gift to someone who has everything?” Somehow, I don’t think it should be this hard. But when your expectations are low and you want only to be with family and friends, gifts become more difficult. The intangible gifts of time and love and positive encouragement and influence can mean as much or more than a material gift.
Our hopes are in the Lord. We trust Him to meet our needs and use us for His glory. We know in whom we have believed and are convinced that He is able to guard what we have entrusted to Him until that day (cf. II Tim. 1:12). May God grant each of us-and all of us-His immeasurable grace this Christmas season.
Encouragingly Your, Russell Cook
