I’m a sap when it comes to Christmas music. One of my favorite CDs is an Amy Grant Christmas album. I don’t know why, but I enjoy some of the more melancholy tunes—like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Maybe it taps into the melancholy side of my personality. But when I think about it, many of those tunes are full of longing—longing for a better future, for a better life. But the world’s basis for that hope is really hope in hope. Even in some of the more positive, secular Christmas tunes like “A Christmas to Remember,” the hope of Christmas seems to center around the traditions of this season—the lights, the sounds, time with friends and family. But those secular tunes are in stark contrast to Christian Christmas music and carols. As believers, we have a hope that is certain because our hope is anchored in Christ and His faithfulness to fulfill His promises. But what are those promises that give us lasting hope? Join us this Saturday, December 12th, as we hear part 2 in our Christmas series on The Hope of Christmas!
