Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Dave Howarth (Lead Pastor Holy Cross Church)
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.” Luke 2.13-14
We invest tons of energy seeking favour—wanting to be desired, known, and loved. But even if we measure up to others, no one can fill the void, meet the need, or “cover the cost” of our intimacy-hunger.
There’s no way, then, to calculate the worth of this declaration from God’s messenger: “peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Don’t consume it as a quick snack. Slowly relish it.
It’s more than we could ever expect, more than we deserve, more ours than we realize. Through Jesus’ finished work – taking our disgrace, giving us His righteousness – we now live in God’s full, permanent, unwavering favour. The rest of Advent/Christmas 2020, may God make this more real to us than anything else.
