A Merry, Merry Christmas to all!
“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 manger.’
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.’ “
-Luke 2: 8-14
Our Lord, born into the world to save us from our sin!
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned. . .
. . .For to us a child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government shall be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over His kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.” -Isaiah 9: 2, 6-7
” Joy to the world – the Lord has come! Let earth receive her peace. Let every heart prepare Him room, and heaven and nature sing!”
May your Christmas be truly blessed.
