“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” -Isaiah 9:2

O come all ye faithless, joyless and defeated.
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.

Christmas is for the weary, for the messed-up, and for the broken. If your life isn’t Instagrammable, Christmas is for you.

“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.”

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” -Romans 8:1

“No condemnation in Christ” means we run away from sin, not towards it. In Christ, it is at last safe to be fully known by God. We don’t need to hide. There’s no need for spin. We can confess our sins deeply and freely, laying before him the worst of ourselves. -Sam Allberry via Twitter

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” -Proverbs 3:5-6

God knows you better than you do.
God loves you more than you do.
God’s more committed to your ultimate joy than you are.

Trust him.

“Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” -Isaiah 6:5

When Isaiah experiences a vision of God he doesn’t cry “Wow!” but “Woe!” God doesn’t overwhelm us with how brilliantly like us He is, but with how disastrously unlike Him we are. -Sam Allberry via Twitter
