Only the beginning...

Christmas is at hand once again and already I feel the expectancy building up inside me. What was once broken will be healed, what was once lost will be found and there is a great future on the horizon. A great future that's beginning started at the birth of Christ.

I have now looked in the eyes of poverty...wide-eyed youth without a home of their own, a nation (theirs and our own) waiting for revival and I can say that in spite of what Ive seen these past few months we have great hope. Because of a babe in a manger who brought very good news.

So renew your commitment this advent season. Commit to making the kingdom known throughout your local community and throughout the whole world. Commit to instilling in the hearts of your children a love for people and not things. Commit to making a room available in your heart and lives to the newborn babe/ full grown King. Afterall he is the reason for the season, but he came for a reason other than a season of celebration. He came to bring a Kingdom where all people would know peace, love and hope. He came to inspire in us a great love for all the nations which is lived out in action.
