Christmas Day has come and gone. While some are still observing the 12 Days of Christmas, many people are looking to the New Year and to new resolutions for health, happiness, and prosperity.
Whether you are lingering over the Christmas Season, looking to the future, or both, may the “spirit of Christmas”—Christ among us and Christ for us, for the forgiveness of our sins—be the source of your hope as 2015 fades into the sunset and 2016 dawns.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. –Romans 15:13
