What a joyous season! Christmas marks God’s gift of love to us in His Son. Notice how the Apostle Paul wrote of it in his letter to Titus: “But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us” (Titus 3). Paul writes in an interesting way here … did you catch it? We know that God is love and of His nature is an aspect of divine kindness, but here we see the expression of His love and kindness through the appearing of His Son in human flesh. What a gift! Because of sin and every evil we need a Savior. In His love and kindness, the answer was Jesus. By His perfect life, His sacrificial death on a cross, and His resurrection from the dead, forgiveness of sin, life and salvation have been won for all. Jesus’ appearing brought joy to the angels and true peace on earth. Rejoice and be glad, this gift is for you!

It is truly 'Jesus Christ Above All' that makes this Christmas Season one of great rejoicing. Let’s carry this joy forward throughout this coming year as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League in Albuquerque, NM. Set aside the dates and join in on a chorus of praise to the Lord. Joy to the World, the Lord is come!
