Happy New Year! For the past four weeks of Advent, we have been talking about God keeping his great BIG promise to send Jesus to be our Savior. For a long, long, long, LONG time, God’s people prayed, “Dear God, keep your promise.” And God did. God said, “Yes! It’s time for the Savior to be born.”
Because God kept that BIG promise, we know he will keep all his other promises too! Those promises are all YES because of Jesus.
God has promised to forgive our sins (1 John 1:9). God has promised to be with us in trouble (Psalm 91:15). God has promised to be our forever friend (Psalm 25:14). Because God kept his promise to send the Savior, we can be sure he will keep all his other promises to us, too. That is very, very good news!
