Christmas message from LSBC: Hope is born

As we head into Christmas it is with the instability of a government in crisis and the fears of poverty caused by a sharp rise in the cost of living. There is less concern about getting the Christmas lights on than about being able to keep any lights on.

Little Stoke Baptist Church has been chatting to neighbours in the community and noted that there is an overwhelming sense of hopelessness looking ahead.

How is it then that LSBC can say “Hope is born”? This hope is rooted not only in the birth of Jesus but in his death and resurrection. It is hope that is not dependent on governments, or circumstances or the state of the economy. It is hope which abounds despite it all.

What Christians around the world celebrate is the birth of a new hope which brings about new life through transformation.

What if a new life meant you were no longer a slave to the system or to fear?

Not that these things magically disappear, Jesus is not a wizard! But a life in Him offers everyone a new sense of purpose and a changed perspective on the reality of hope.

What if your future hope was not controlled by the outward circumstances held in someone else’s hand? What if you could grasp a hold of a new hope that changed your life from the inside out?

This is the hope that is born and this is the hope that Little Stoke Baptist Church wants to introduce you to this Christmas through the birth and life of Jesus Christ.
