Matthew 1:21: “She will give birth to a Son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.”
It is so easy to get focused on the problems all around us. Our country is experiencing the worst addiction epidemic in its history. In 2017, more people died of drug overdose and alcohol than died in the entire Korean War and Vietnam War combined. And for every person who is part of the statistics, there are family members and friends grieving the loss of their loved one. It is easy to become overwhelmed and think that we can do so little to make a difference in this battle, and yet we have been called to be a light in the midst of the darkness, to point the way to the one true hope of freedom: Jesus. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10). Our prayer is that we will be that small drop of water that falls into a placid lake so that the ripple effect spreads across the whole body of water. We want people to see Jesus in the midst of their fear and pain and know that He is the only answer to being set free.
