Questions. They fill our lives. Great and small they challenge who we are and what we stand for. For some, they spur us on to greater things by causing us to examine ourselves. For others, the byproduct of questions is growing fear in our heart. Am I good enough? Is God big enough? Can I ever do enough? Who can I trust?
That first Christmas night was so special because our Answer had come. The One in whom all truth was found. He was the answer for our struggles, for our doubt for our chaos. Think how much power is found in these words to the old Christmas carol O Little Town of Bethlehem:
O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.
