Merry CHRISTmas to All

In Luke 2:11-12, the angel tells the shepherds, “Today your Savior, Christ the Lord, was born in David’s city. This is how you will recognize him: You will find an infant wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger.” (GWN) The shepherds responded in Luke 2:16, and “They went quickly and found Mary and Joseph with the baby, who was lying in a manger.” (GWN)

The verses above give us a sense of what the very first Christmas was like – a time of excitement, yet serenity; a time of anticipation, then realization of the most blessed Gift that could ever come to mankind . . . Jesus Christ, the Son of God!

We are living in a day when it seems that the word “Christmas” is constantly under attack, and we Christians are encouraged to feel somewhat “guilty” when it comes to this special time. Well, The Time is NOW to shout in as loud a voice as possible, “WE ARE NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOOD NEWS!” Romans 1:16, “I’m not ashamed of the Good News. It is God’s power to save everyone who believes, Jews first and Greeks as well.” (GWN)
