“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name of Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21. Herein lies our hope and the hope of the nations! Hope is something that seems to be in very short supply from the world these days – and yet, that is the way it has always been, and always will be whenever trust is put in anything or anyone other than the Creator & Savior Himself!
