Merry CHRISTmas……

THE BIRTH OF JESUS

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be
taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took
place while Quirinius was governor of Syria). And everyone went to his
own town to register

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to
Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of
David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married
to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for
the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She
wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room
for them in the inn.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over
their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory
of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said
to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be
for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to
you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a
baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a .”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,
praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on
whom his favor rests.”

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to
the one another, ” Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has
happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying
in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what
had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at
what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and
pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising
God for all the things they had heard and seen , which were just as they had
been told. (Luke 2: 1-20 NIV)

My CHRISTmas prayer for each of you is that you take a moment out of your
busy life and reflect on the miracle that happened oh so many years ago, and
yet, can happen each and every day in the lives of the ones around you.
May you continue to grow deeper in your understanding of God’s love for
you and His desire for you to show His Love to those around you.

Merry CHRISTmas!
