Merry Christmas

Luke 2:10-14
10. . .I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;

11for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

12"This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

13And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14"Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased."

* * * * * * * * * * *

Fortunately, for us, the story of Christ does not end with his birth. For it is through the gift of life he was given that he was able to give us life through his death.

It is a gift given to us, and it is our choice as to whether or not we take it and accept it. Thus, the reason for John 3:16-17: 16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

I hope that you all have a beautiful Christmas. Celebrate life and what it means to really love other people. Without each other and without love, we are nothing.

Jesus didn't die to save a tree, afterall. :)

It is one of my favorites. It reminds you of why we have Christmas.

I love the Gaither Vocal Band, too. Such voices.
