Christmas is such a time of longing – and waiting. We look forward with expectancy. We are excited about what is to come. But we also have within us a longing for something we have lost; for something wonderful to be restored. The Bible tells us that “we all have sinned – and fall short of the glory of God.” So part of what we celebrate this Christmas is how what we need and what we lack has now been restored.
