Hope is Born #2 - Matthew 1:18-25

You promised!
You said it would happen!
A teenager would become pregnant.
She wouldn’t abort.
She would carry him despite the shame and the sniggers.  
And he would be born.
Simply, ugly and poor. 
She would call him ‘saviour’.
And she would call him ‘God with us’.
Because that day,
You came!
You kept your promise!
You did what you said you would do.
You came to be with us.
And to save us.
You have promised that you are coming again!
You said it would happen!
And today we are looking and we are longing and we are waiting…for you to keep your promise again…
Come King Jesus come!
