The Prince came on a rescue mission to save us from eternal damnation and to defeat evil once and for all. He came first as a baby who grew to a man who then sacrificed his life for us. (Because He loved us so much!) Next time He'll come back as a Warrior King who will rule and reign in righteousness, and we will be with Him forever!
It's a bit like a fairy tale, isn't it? The damsel in distress held captive by the evil warlock, doomed to live in the dungeon forever. But then the prince shows up on his white horse with his sword and he defeats the warlock and carries us off to his palace to live happily ever after!
Who says Fairy Tales aren't true? Who says there aren't Happily Ever Afters? We believers are living in a Fairy Tale that is more real then what we see around us. The entire world longs to believe in happily ever afters, that good will always defeat evil, that love will always prevail! That's what Jesus came to do. I pray that no matter what you are facing this Christmas season, that thought will give you the hope and joy to endure anything until He returns!
From my family to yours, Merry, Merry Christmas and Happily Ever After to you!
