From Bah Humbug to Blessed:

The Hope of Christmas Future

Luke 19:1-10

When Scrooge wakes up on Christmas morning, everything looks and feels different.  While previously his outlook had been dim and frightful, now he found that he overflowed with happiness and pleasure.

Action: How can you celebrate a new start on Christmas?  Do you need to offer or accept forgiveness?  Is there sin in your life you can turn over to God?  How can Christmas inspire you to deepen your faith and grow closer to God? What “Scrooge-ness” in your life can be redeemed?

Prayer: Gracious God, you who make all things new, renew us this day and every day, so that we might be strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit to reach out in love and service to the world. Amen.
