This week I want to start off with some verses, “In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.”
Luke 2:1-7 This week I would like us to take some time and reflect on how Jesus came for us at Christmas. God’s goal for sending Him was for Him to die on the cross, so we could have eternal life. But, like I said last week He came for all, so that none should perish. I also want to encourage anyone who is reading or listening to this, if you do not know Jesus to come to know Him today. There is no better time than Christmas to come to know Him. Christmas for so many people this year and every year can also be a sad time, they reflect on who they have lost, but that is the Hope that came in the manger, that we will see them again and be with the Lord forever. So this week lets not forget to thank Jesus for coming to die for us. Yes, this might not be His actual birthday, but we can celebrate like it is. So this Christmas let’s celebrate the greatest gift that God gave us the gift of being redeemed, able to know Him, and to be His son or daughter.
