In the midst of the uncertainties of life, and especially having in mind of all the turmoil in the world today, “...we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed” (Titus 2:13)  

Mary certainly faced self-doubts and questions from her family. She may have been the topic of gossip and the target of scorn among her neighbors. But she looked forward with hope.

Mary raised her voice in praise, “Oh, how my soul praises the Lord. How my spirit rejoices in God my Savior! For he took notice of his lowly servant girl

He shows mercy from generation to generation to all who fear him. His mighty arm has done tremendous things! He has...exalted the humble. He has "lled the hungry with good things. (From Luke 1:47-53 ). 

Zechariah also rejoiced with hope, “Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has visited and redeemed his people. 

He has sent us a mighty Savior from the royal line of his servant David, just as he promised through his holy prophets long ago.

We can serve God without fear, in holiness and righteousness for as long as we live (From Luke 1:68-70). 

We live in hope because of the faithfulness of our God.

We have been blessed by the hope that we have found in our Savior, Jesus Christ. We light this Candle of Hope (light the first candle), praying that those “living in darkness will see a great light” (From Isaiah 9:2).

Come, Lord Jesus; remind us that you brought hope to the hopeless.

Come, Lord Jesus; renew the sense of hope in our own lives. Come, Lord Jesus; revive our desire to give hope to those around us. Amen.
