It is still Christmas for Christians. We have seen the fulfillment
of the prophecies of old in the birth of Christ. The Christmas story
leaves us all pretty confident of God’s promises right now.
But we aren’t always so confident. There are all sorts of
people and circumstances in our lives that shake our confidence
in our faith despite the fact that “all the ends of the earth
have seen the saving power of God” and the Lord’s wondrous
deeds. Have we not been shown God’s kindness in our lives?
Have we not seen the faithfulness of the Lord? Have we not seen
God’s salvation? Have we not seen his justice at work? Today
is a good time to reflect on these questions. The psalmist says
these acts of the saving power of God are everywhere. We should
all be able to see them in our lives. It is good to take time to
write these questions down and to follow them with personal examples
in our own lives. If we can’t think of any examples, maybe
we should visit our pastor or priest for a conversation.
