Then the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid, for behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy
which will be to all people.
Today your Savior was born in the town of David.
He is Christ the Lord.”
“……The gift of God is eternal life.” Romans 6:23.
This is the time when Christians
around the world remember His birth.
Our heavenly Father’s greatest gift to the world –
was His Son Jesus– and Jesus’ gift is eternal life –
that cost Him His life.
God’s plan for a great family reunion
centers on the Child of Bethlehem.
It does not matter when He was born,-
the very fact that He was born itself
calls for celebration and rejoicing.
Because He was born and fulfilled His mission-
there will be a resurrection one day!
And there will be a family circle again – Forever!
It was an extra-ordinary night-
with ordinary sheep and shepherds.
They would have been forgotten
and not recorded in History –
if an angelic host did not appear in the night sky
to announce the birth of Jesus.
The night was not ordinary any more-
As we celebrate his BIRTH –
let us look forward and rejoice
that soon He will return again-
For another Celebration!
May God bless you all -who have shared in
‘reading my Journal’ this year.
As we celebrate the real reason for – Christmas.
The blessed gift to the world.
The reason for the season- Jesus!
