And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matt. 1:21-23)
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. (Luke 2:11-14)
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the Law, To redeem them that were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. (Gal. 4:4-5)
I also pray for you that if you do not have a relationship with Him by faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary that you would repent and receive Him and His gift to you of Salvation. The real Christmas gift was the gift of His Son that you might have life and have it more abundantly. Please read and accept His gift for you this Christmas.
If you are a child of God by faith then I pray that you would celebrate this season all that God has given you and bless God even in His blessings with a grateful heart and joyous worship as you look ahead to what God is going to do in the coming year.
Jesus is the Reason,
