One Week to Christmas

At Christmas all roads lead home. (Marjorie Holmes, 20th century American columnist)

I’ll Be Home for Christmas is one of our most beloved Christmas songs. The very sentimental lyrics bring tears to our eyes, as we realize that the singer is going to be home only in his dreams. It’s the memories of past holidays that add to our anticipation of this special day. And it’s a reminder of the one who left his home to bring joy and peace to earth.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him (John 3:17).
