Smallbone, whose band recently released the new holiday album, "A Drummer Boy Christmas," offered some stirring and important words during an interview with The Christian Post, encouraging people to cling to hope amid the chaos that has emerged throughout 2020.

"They say that people can last 30 days without food and three or four days without water, but not a day without hope," he said, speaking of the COVID-19 crisis. "I think that's what we're up against in this world, it's a very unique time. It's not just America going through what we've gone through in 2020, it's literally the entire world."

With these events leaving so many with feelings of emptiness and hopelessness, Smallbone said he believes the coming Christmas celebration holds the power to help fill people who are desperately in need of some positivity.

"My hope is that the birth of Jesus will be something that is celebrated with a different vigor this year, because I don't know about you, but ... when I'm focusing on myself and the things that I'm walking through, it doesn't usually lead to a lot of joy," he said. "But when I get to focus on others, and then I get to focus on who Jesus really is, there's this element of, man, in the truest nature of worship, I could do anything!"

Smallbone is hopeful that recognizing Jesus this Christmas will remind every individual that he or she can power through anything with God by his or her side.
