War Cry Online
A Weary World Rejoices
Has the verse, “the weary world rejoices!’ felt truer than it does in these times? “What is truth?” Pilate asked this during the trial of Jesus Christ, John 18:38. General André Cox tells us that we can know the truth through God’s greatest gift, Jesus Christ; Colonel Satterlee reminds us that Christ brought hope to the world. As we enjoy this Christmas season and read the stories in this month’s War Cry Online, may we be filled with the knowledge of the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the hope that His birth brought (and still brings) to a weary world.
