The Reason for the Season

PackageAs we celebrate this beautiful Christmas day, let’s take a moment to remember the true reason for this amazing season which is found within the pages of Matthew 1:18-2:11 and Luke…

The greatest present from God to all mankind!

Luke 1:26 – 35

Now in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee named Nazareth, to a girl never having been married and a virgin engaged to be married to a man whose name was Joseph, a descendant of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.  And he came to her and said, Hail, O favored one!  The Lord is with you!  But she was greatly troubled and disturbed and confused at what he said and kept revolving in her mind what such a greeting might mean.  And the angel said to her, Do not be afraid  Mary, for you have found grace with God.  And listen! You will become pregnant and will give birth to a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to Him the throne of His forefather David.  And He will reign over the house of Jacob throughout the ages; and of His reign there will be no end.  And Mary said to the angel, How can this be, since I have no husband?  Then the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will over-shadow you; and so the holy Thing which shall be born of you will be called the Son of God.

Luke 2:4 – 2:11

And Joseph also went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea to the town of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David.  To be enrolled with Mary, his espoused wife, who was about to become a mother.  And while they were there, the time came for her delivery.  And she gave birth to her Son, her Firstborn; and she wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room or place for them in the inn.  And in that vicinity there were shepherds living in the field, watching over their flock by night.  And behold, an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord flashed and shone all about them, and they were terribly frightened.  But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people. For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ the Lord!

Happy Birthday Jesus
