"There is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
Today, you have reason to rejoice... for Christ the Savior was born.
As you celebrate this day, keep CHRIST in Christmas! And keep in mind: it's not about the gifts under the tree but about the One who died ON the tree to redeem us from our sins. He is the greatest Gift of all.
This Gift grants you eternal life. This Gift sets the captive free and heals all of our diseases. Born in a humble stable next to stinking cattle, Baby Jesus came into this world in the most lowly of ways. But He is coming back to rule and to reign at the right hand of God the Father.
As your family gathers from near and far this Christmas, remember the true reason for the season. Amid the chaos of tinsel and toys, dinner parties and late nights spent wrapping the perfect present for Uncle Joe, remember the Child who was born to die in your place.
Thank You, God, for the Babe in Bethlehem’s manger who has granted each and every one of us the gift of eternal life!
