Luke 2:7-14
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in
swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was
no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the
Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which
is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Light from the Word.

The JOY of the whole earth is the Christ Child being born!

When we sinners could offer Him nothing,
He came to offer us EVERYTHING!

He Who was prophesied APPEARED!
And, what a miracle of HOW He appeared, in a lowly stable!

And what a miracle that the angel disclosed to the shepherds!

CHRISTmas is the JOY of the earth!
Christ came to be our “SAVIOR!”

When we could do nothing to please God,
He came to please God FOR us!

This CHRISTmas, determine in your heart to share the JOY!

Sing with the heavenly angels:
”Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will
toward men.”

Let the joy of eternal salvation fill your heart to overflowing!
And SHARE the GOOD NEWS of Jesus with everyone!

Love ya!
