Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
We have anxiously been awaiting this day, as we have spent this Advent season preparing for the coming of Christ. Today we rejoice in the birth of Jesus Christ, our savior. We celebrate this Christmas day and recognize that this is the day Jesus was born into the world. We rejoice in this day knowing that He came to save us from our sins and bring good news to all.
The picture of sleeping babies pictured above reminds us of Christmas night where baby Jesus was laid in the manger. We see hope and good news. We are also reminded that we are all created in His perfect and loving image.
On this Christmas Day, may you be reminded of all the meanings that this day has. Jesus is born and He is alive within us—He is our Teacher, our Healer, our Redeemer, our Savior, and He is our Bread of Life.
Joy to the World, The Lord has Come!
