Silent Night? (Post 5)
Very few nights are truly silent. We love the words of the carol, and the night of Jesus' birth was very still and quiet in a sacred sense. But, in God's ears, there is no silent night as far as earth is concerned. Every evening, He hears the soft weeping of breaking hearts, the screams of those in pain, the wails of those who are grieving, the pleas of those in need . . . every earthly night is filled with the noise of a hurting world. And that's why He sent Jesus - to bring the redeeming, healing quiet of grace to all those who cry. Jesus came to bring us the beauty of a "silent night."
