Many times, we feel as though darkness is all around us. When things are bad enough, they seem to get even worse. When the pathway of our journey is dimly lit and we feel like there is no more hope, at that point, we must begin to anticipate something more. We have to begin to expect that something great is going to happen. The people who believed in Jesus had hope on the inside that something absolutely wonderful and amazing was about to happen.

The gift of Jesus Christ to humankind is the greatest gift ever given. But it is not the only gift. When Jesus came into the world, He made it possible for us to obtain many other gifts — gifts such as peace, joy, and wonder which we often take for granted, but which we cannot get on our own. This book is about 12 of those other gifts that Jesus gives.

Peace and Confident Hope (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 360)

peace-and-confident-hope

Ephesians 1:18 (NLT)
I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.

We hear the word “peace” used at certain times throughout the year. World leaders use it during times of war and terror. Ordinary people use it on social media as an impetus for the rest of the world to stop and look for it. Activists use it as a benchmark, something for which we all should be working toward. Church ministers use the word “peace” especially during the Christmas season. After all, peace is the result of Christmas. We long to be at peace with God, with other people, and with ourselves.

Letting Jesus In (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 359)

letting-jesus-in

Luke 2:7 (NLT)
She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.

What do we make room for in our lives? Our spouses. Our children. Our significant others. Our pets. Our work. Our hobbies. Our daily agendas. Our faith doesn’t always make the list. Sometimes, we tend to put faith on a back burner while pursuing what we deem as more important. Other times, faith just gets pushed to the back burner because we allow so many other things to crowd our line of vision, hearing, and feeling. Just imagine how we would feel if a family member or friend told us that they didn’t have space for us at the dinner table. Read more…

Don’t Be Afraid (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 358)

dont-be-afraid

Luke 2:10 (NLT)
But the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.”

Throughout the Christmas story, four individuals had two things in common with each other. Joseph, Mary, Zechariah and the shepherds all were afraid or troubled and each time an angel came to them and told them not to be afraid. To the shepherds, the angel told them not to be afraid because of the promise of a Savior. To Mary, the angel told her not to be afraid because she was in God’s favor. To Joseph, the angel told him not to be afraid and instead to follow God’s divine plan for the Christ child’s birth. To Zechariah, the angel told him not to be afraid because his prayers for a child had been answered. Read more…

A Cave Made for a King (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 357)

a-cave-made-for-a-king

Isaiah 9:6 (NLT)
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Over the years, I have seen some very beautiful Nativity scenes in front of houses, churches, and other public places. When I was a kid, it evoked a sense of wonder and to a degree, it still does. But there are, of course, some inaccuracies as a result of people’s imagination. For one, Jesus did not have blond hair or blue eyes as many ethnic-European photos describe him. Most accurate historians and scholars agree that Jesus was ethnically Middle Eastern. Read more…

Light Poured In and Shining (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 356)

light-poured-in-and-shining

John 1:10-11 (NLT)
He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. He came to his own people, and even they rejected him.

If this were a world of pure goodness, we probably would need the expectation of going to heaven. If this were a world of light, it would be fairly easy to recognize the truth of Jesus amidst the fiction. But this is a world that is neither good or filled with light. And we have contributed to that condition. This is a world wrought with evil and darkness into which Jesus came to be the true light. Read more…
