December 25th- It’s finally here! The day that marks the beginning of His story. The story of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. The miracle God performed using the virgin Mary to conceive and bear His son, His Only Son who would grow up to be the Savior of all mankind. It all began on His birthday, on the day that we celebrate Him, Christmas. His story is found in Luke 2: 1-11
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
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.Jesus Christ is the REAL reason we celebrate this wonderful holiday called Christmas. He is so worth y of our gifts………. all of our gifts. Wishing you and yours blessings this Christmas season and a New Year filled with grace and peace. Love in Him, Margie
