Happy Birthday Jesus.  We are so glad YOU came to save us!!!  Oh, I think that’s part of a song. Thank you, Jesus for loving us enough to come to us–Emmanuel.

Although we are the ones receiving gifts on the day we celebrate your birthday, Lord, may we be faithful to share YOU with others.  Today may we not only have joy and laughter, food, fun and fellowship, but also think about and thank YOU.

May our lives honor you as we remember that without this wonderful gift of your incarnation to purchase our salvation we would have no hope.  YOU ARE THE GIFTThe greatest gift.

Luke 2:11, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”

John’s words say it all for me and may they bring joy to you on this wonderful Christmas day.

John 3:13-21, “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” 

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
