The Weary World Rejoices

Perhaps that line from O Holy Night–“The weary world rejoices”–rings especially true this year. We continually battle the weariness that comes from living in a fallen, sinful world. But 2020 has brought a series of problems that have made life especially difficult for a great number of people all across the globe. There is no need to recite once again the well-rehearsed list of all the terrible things we had to endure this year. But through the darkness of 2020 shines the light of Christmas! Celebrating the arrival of Jesus gives hope to an otherwise hopeless world.

“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn…!”

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”—Matthew 11:28.
