“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 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. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:8-11 (KJV).
The story of Christmas. How simple its beginning; how incredible its message. The baby, born of a virgin, in a manger, in Bethlehem. The beautiful words of “Silent Night” remind us of the miracle that took place on that first Christmas when Jesus was born. The gift of God’s Son to all who believe is the greatest gift anyone can receive—the gift of eternal life. It is truly amazing! The baby who grew to be a man died a cruel death on the cross. But, He defeated death and rose again to become the Saviour of the world. Because of him, mankind can have life everlasting. Of all the gifts that will be opened this Christmas, the greatest gift is Jesus!
