Until the day that the Lord takes His people home, He knows that Satan will be hurling darts of discouragement at them. That is why Jesus gave us His promise that He would never leave us nor forsake us. Christians today have His Holy Spirit dwelling in them, but even before He gave His people the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, Scripture has many passages that show God comforting His people in hard times throughout history. We pray that you will find hope and comfort as you listen to the conclusion of Pastor Ray Viola’s Christmas Eve message from twenty sixteen.
