Luke 2:1–7 (ESV) MERRY CHRISTMAS
The Birth of Jesus Christ
2 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And
all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4 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,
5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 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.
A birth with no fanfare from the world,
but the spiritual world was rocked! The birth of the Messiah… the Christ! Merry Christmas!
I pray: O heavenly Father, you have given
us the greatest gift… your Son. Your plan of Salvation was put into action. Thank you. Amen.
