Merry Christmas from Hike It Forward

HikeItForward-Final-MediumI love the transformation that occurs in Scrooge’s life after he discovers the joy of giving and the love for others. Because of this transformation, Ebenezer begins to change his world.

And when George Bailey (It’s a Wonderful Life) realizes the impact that he has had on his world, Christmas brings his life into focus.

Understanding the significance of the manger and the ramifications of the cross in my life, there has been a transformation in my mission and purpose for living. Christmas is such a special time for children but it is ultimately an adult event – God becoming man and dwelling with His creation. The birth of the Messiah, the perfect life of love and compassion, the sacrificial death for our atonement, the resurrected Christ offering forgiveness and eternal life…this is the amazing gift of God for all who believe.

May I be able to hike in order to give to others. May my life count. May I begin to change my world.

Merry Christmas to all!! May your day be filled with the reality of God’s love and may your new year be filled with many opportunities to change your world!
