On the Seventh Day of Christmas,

God sent more angels. He sent hope.



On the seventh day of Christmas, God sent more angels. He sent hope.


Luke 2:10-14 - “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.’”


Dear Family and Friends,


For thousands of years, the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God born of a virgin, was prophesied. From Genesis through Revelations, prophets foretold of a Savior, a Messiah, that would save mankind from sin. And God’s people, those who heard the prophecies and believed that God’s Son would come to deliver them from the bonds of death, waited in anticipation for that glorious day. And they hoped.


Generation after generation, God’s people faithfully waited. While God’s people waited, they also lived, loved, suffered, sinned, learned, became, struggled, conquered, feared, believed, and died. And even then, they waited still for the birth of their King. They waited for He who was sinless to take upon Him their sins. They waited for He who was innocent to take upon Him their suffering, their pain, their disappointment. They waited for He who was pure to take upon Him their fear, their strife, and their uncertainties.


“The world waits for a miracle.

The heart longs for a little bit of hope.

O come, O come, Emmanuel.


A child prays for peace on Earth,

Calling out from a sea of hurt.

O come, O come, Emmanuel.


Can you hear the angels singing?

Glory to the Light of the world.

Glory to the Light of the world…

Is here!”


Finally, the waiting was over.


“The drought breaks with the tears of a mother.

A baby’s cry is the sound of love come down.

Come down. Emmanuel.


He is the song for the suffering.

He is the Messiah, the Prince of Peace.

He has come! He has come! Emmanuel!


Glory to the Light of the world!

Glory to the Light of the world! Glory to the Light of the world!

Glory to the Light of the world!

For all who waited.

For all who hungered.

For all who’ve prayed.

For all who wandered…

Behold Your King!

Behold Messiah!

(Lauren Daigle, Light of the World)


Many times throughout history, God has sent angels. Usually, He sent one angel at a time as His emissary, one angel to carry a special message from God. But for the birth of His Son, for all those generations of God’s people who had waited for, prayed for, hungered for this miraculous day, God opened the heaven’s and multitudes of heavenly hosts shouted, “Hosannah! Glory to God in the highest!” And they rejoiced, praising the babe, lying in His mother’s arms, for He had come! He had fulfilled the prophesies! He would defy death so they, too, could rise again! With His birth, there was again hope.


Glory to God in the highest, indeed!


On the seventh day of Christmas, God sent more angels. He sent hope.


Love Always,
