This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: “His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, Mary was found to be with a Child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph was a righteous man and did not want her to be exposed to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
After considering this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a Son and you are to give Him the name of Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.’
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet. “The Virgin will be with a child and will give birth to a Son, and they will call Him Immanuel – which means God with you/us, For you/us In you/us (Matthew 1:18-23).
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isiah 9:6).”
“An angel of the Lord appeared and said, I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. Today a Saviour has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel praising God in the Highest and on earth peace and goodwill to man (Luke 2:10-14).”
- “Thanks be to God for His indescribably gift (2 Corinthians 9:15)”
- “Praise and Thanks God for His surpassing Grace given to us all (Ephesians 2:8-9)”
- For it is by Grace you have been saved through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the Gift of God, not of/by works lest any should boast…For God so loved the world that He gave that He gave His only begotten Son , that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16)”
Dear Reader Friends…”the same good news an angel of the Lord heralded then, that brought joy and sure hope and salvation to all people from every nation, kindred and tongues, is still echoing for all time and eternity…the invitation is His…come unto me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…take my yoke upon you and you will find rest for your souls…for my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30)
