Thought for the Day by Ben Martin (Curate)
That’s it. Christmas is over. The light at the end of the year faded away for another year.
Normally this is the time of year when we munch on those tins of biscuits we’ve been given, catch up with family and friends and look ahead to what the new year may hold.
But this year is different.
This week doesn’t feel that different to any other, we still can’t mix and if the science is right then the start of 2021 might not be the best and brightest.
But there is hope… and I don’t mean the vaccine. Because we may have finished celebrating Christmas, but Christmas is not finished with us.
No, the Lord Jesus, a babe meek and mild grew to become a man in first century Israel. A man who died upon a green hill outside of Jerusalem for you and for me, who rose from the dark tomb to win new life and is now ascended and seated at the Right hand of the Father.
This year, this week may feel different, but Jesus, the King of Christmas is still the same.
And what is he doing now? Jesus is praying for you. He is praying that today in your weariness and tiredness of more of the same that you may know the never ending, never giving up love of the Father for you. Jesus is praying that we may see that we may live out our identity as forgiven sinners because that is who we are.
However you feel today, whether you are on top of the world, at the bottom of the pit or somewhere in between.
Jesus is praying for you today.
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. (Hebrews 7:25)
