The incarnation of Jesus Christ was the promise of a dream of a people come to fruition. It wasn’t exactly the way they imagined, but it was the gift that also helped us keep dreaming and imagining the new world that is possible when we are looking through God’s eyes.
The prophet Isaiah spoke of dreams for God’s people, dreams that continued to have meaning when the Christians looked at the life of Jesus. And they continue to speak to the dream that God has for all of us today… dreams for a world of unity, peace, healing, hope, and joy.
What dreams is God birthing in each of our hearts this Christmas? What dreams will be realized in your life? What dreams can we make come true for others this Christmas?
Pastor April Blaine is speaking unless otherwise noted.
