God Loves You. Seek Him
Until Christmas by T.K. Chapin is a delightful Christian festive offering and part of the Potter’s House series. A perfect read for any time of year.
The main theme of the novel is that of trust. “Everything seems a mess, but I am choosing to trust You.” Even when life is falling apart,we can trust that God has a plan for our lives. Whatever is happening, God is in control. “I feel like God is so distant and quiet.” Our feelings are an unreliable gauge God is working for our good, regardless of what we are feeling.
The story is about true treasure. “Home wasn’t a location… but… a person, a memory and a hope.” Our treasure is always found in a ‘who’ and never a ‘what.’ Money, status and possessions will never satisfy. “He had nice furniture, beautiful art… None of it seemed to help fill the empty void.” We will always be chasing the next ‘high’ if we do not find our purpose in God.
People may let us down. God never will. Once we are secure in God, we will find contentment in ourselves.
We need to discover God for ourselves. “You can’t make a true judgement call about God based on His sinful people… You have to get to know the real God.” If we look for the character of God based on the behaviour of other Christians our view will always be skewed. We need to immerse ourselves in the Word of God to discover and know the heart and character of God.
Until Christmas is so delightful. It has Godly lessons for us all as we learn about the love of God for everyone. Thank you T.K. Chapin for another great story.
