The Thrill of Hope

Many of you know this, or this may be new for you, but for generations - many, many, many generations - there was always a remnant of Jewish people who waited every single day for the arrival - not of Santa Claus, but of a Messiah. In every single generation, there was a group of people and they lived their lives every single day in obedience to God's command, knowing that this could be the day their awaited Messiah arrives - the Thrill of Hope. But unlike the certainty of our Christmas morning, this went on for generation after generation after generation and nothing happened; 9 9.999% of these people who waited and waited and waited for the coming of the Messiah died, and there was no fulfillment of that promise given so many years before.
