Living in Hope

  • Dec 2020 Issue

He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.—1 Peter 1:3

It’s been a hard year for most of us. But as we anticipate Christmas, we rest in the words of the Psalmist: “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me” (Ps. 23:4). Advent reminds us that the Living God is with us during each step of our journey. Christmas is a beautiful celebration of Emmanuel, God with us when the Greatest of All became one of us.

So, join us, as we learn about the hope we have in Christ and rejoice in His salvation—a present truth and our future hope. We pray this study for the Advent season will encourage your heart and help you:

  • Understand the hope, love, joy, and peace at the heart of the gospel and the Christmas story
  • Celebrate the truths that brought joy to the world and to you personally
  • Live out these truths in your relationship with God and fellow believers

Thank you for walking alongside Today in the Word in 2020. This ministry wouldn’t be possible without the prayer and financial support of friends like you. Your help means the world to us! The journey continues. Merry Christmas!
