Thought for the Month: For life, not just for Christmas

‘This is the message of Christmas: we are never alone.’ I’m not sure what the American novelist Taylor Caldwell actually meant when she wrote this brief comment on end-of-year celebrations. After all, for many isolated people loneliness can be felt even more keenly at this time of the year, when traditionally most of us expect to enjoy the company of family or friends.

There is some truth in the statement, however. This is the message of Christmas: ‘they will call Him [Jesus] Immanuel, which means ‘God with us’ (Matthew 1:23). God came to our world in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin, grew up, and lived a uniquely perfect human life, in which he revealed and demonstrated the love, grace, truth and justice of the character of God. He was unjustly arrested and executed, but raised to life again ‘on the third day’. Through His death and resurrection He offers us forgiveness and a new relationship with God.

This new relationship includes the assurance that He is always with us. Before Jesus left this earth to return to heaven, He told His followers, ‘Surely I am with you always to the very end of the age’ (Matthew 28:20). So the message of Christmas – Immanuel, God with us – is not just for Christmas; it’s a message for all time. And not just for all time, but for eternity as well (Revelation 21:3).

We don’t know what 2022 has in store for us, but those who have invited the Lord Jesus into their lives know that He is with them, as he promised, through this coming year and for ever.
