A Peaceful Surprise
What are you expecting this Christmas? How about a box full of peace? A stocking crammed with rest? Not what you were expecting? But wouldn’t it be great surprise? Jesus wasn’t exactly the kind of military Messiah his people were expecting, either. He didn’t come to grant their political Christmas wish list. But in Matthew 11:29 Christ tells us “Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” This Christmas season, get ready for a peaceful surprise. Jesus may not be what you expect. But he’s all you need.
