“The Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior”
Oh Christmas, The day has finally come. People have been looking forward to this day since last Christmas. Perhaps they love the food, being with family, giving and receiving presents.
I love Christmas because it reminds us of the birth of Jesus Christ. He was born nearly 2000 years ago, most probably not on December 25th. So why do I love Christmas.
It is the continuation of God’s plan A. because we are all sinners (and that is why we sin) one of the Godhead need to cone to the earth. They need to go through a human life so He would experience all that we experience with one exception. This member of the Godhead, Jesus Christ would not sin. Why is this important? Because He is not born a sinner and He does not sin, He is able to die for our sins. He is the perfect sacrifice. In addition, when we accept His perfect blood for our sins, believe that Christ gave His life for our sins, He e=was buried ad resurrected, the Holy Spirit baptizes us into the Body of Christ. Then the Holy Spirit lives in us, leads, and guides us, He makes us just as if we never sinned, He robes u with His Righteousness and makes us Holy.
God’s plan A in fantastic, fabulous, awesome. Please read more about it in the book that is called the Holy Bible. Merry Christmas to one and all.
1 In those days, Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.
2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)
3 And everyone went to his own town to register.
4 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.
5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,
7 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.
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
10 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.
11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,
18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.
19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
