Festive Christmas BellsLet the Bells Ring out for it is Christmas Day
Once again we read and treasure the Bible passages that tell of our dear Savior’s birth.
Luke 2:7  And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
Luke 2:11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest,  and on earth peace, good will toward men!
Isaiah 9:6  His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Matthew 2:9b-10  The star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was.  When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.
Read through the Christmas passages and see the love of our God as He sent His Son to this earth.  Our Savior was born to a lowly young woman, Mary and conceived  in her by the Holy Spirit.  Jesus was born in a lowly manger and grew up sinless.  The angels, the shepherds and the Wise Men all came to praise and adore Him.
Jesus our Saviour came to this earth to die for our sins.  What joy we now have, knowing that our Savior is in Heaven preparing a place for us also.

God’s promise of Messiah, is fulfilled in Jesus Christ that is a wonderful reason to rejoice at Christmas

and all year through! What a joy to be one in Christ in our earthly fellowship and to encourage one another with the Word at this time and throughout our lifetime until we lowly ones go to be with Him.
