From the promise in Genesis 3:15 of the rising up of an offspring that would crush Satan, the coming of a Savior, the Messiah, had been the hope. Today, we look back to the original Christmas when the hope arrived and onto Calvary where hope was made sure. Today, we live in the now and the not yet. The war has been won; victory is sure. However, battles still rage, and people still die. But we have this hope. The same Jesus who came will come again, and we will experience the joy of being reunited with those we love and the end of sin and sickness and death. Jesus is our hope.
