In our very best moments, such as being captivated by a worship service, experiencing beauty in music, the love of a companion, we may feel that we have come in contact with something great, something we wish we could hold onto or make to last forever. But nothing ever does.
For the believer, Advent is not about probabilities, but promises. It is a chance to once again look into the promises of old and see how God for hundreds of years laid out a plan of salvation for his people. Then, Christmas is promises realized. It is the fulfilment of hope, and for those who saw this new savior there was no doubting that he was enough. Enough to right the wrongs of our world, enough to give peace to those longing, enough to provide forgiveness to the seemingly unforgivable.
