Don’t forget good news of Christmas

St. Luke 2:10 “And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 2:11, “for unto you is born this day in the City of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”

Greetings to the inhabitants of the Earth; there is good news at Christmas: because the Bible tells us so — which is the word of a true, tried and tested, living God —who has proved himself; over and over throughout the history of man; amen!

It is inherent in mankind to believe in something; either fiction; imaginative; positive or negative, we all have a “choice” to make.

There is no “neutral ground”; unfortunately many of us deceive ourselves, thinking that “Christmas” is all about “me, myself and I” doing whatever I want to do at this joyous celebration time of the year; Amen!

Many people celebrate Christmas, because their workplace provides time off from whatever your normal job routine may be.

That is an unmerited gift, that you did not earn. The bible tells us — the fool has said in his heart; that there is no “God”; I beg to differ and ask the question, do you believe in the “Christmas story about Jesus Christ? — amen. I concur with the songwriter, and join with the “angelic host of heaven” singing joy to the world — amen — A savior is born.

Oh, my friends, I encourage you right now; wherever you are, whatever your situation, begin to give the almighty God — thanks be to God — for your unspeakable gift; your unsearchable gift and your unselfish gift, “through Jesus, the Christ” Amen! He is our supreme, superior, sufficient and super gift to us: through faith in him — amen (Jesus Christ).

Proverb 10:22 “The blessing of the Lord, brings joy and He adds no sorrow to it.” Amen!

As we prepare to give and receive gifts at Christmas; do remember, if there was no Christ born over 2,000 years ago, there would be no joyous celebration to this historical figure; Jesus Christ.

The Bible tells us it is more blessed to give, than to receive. God is our supreme example, he gave the best that he had for the worst of his creatures; Amen!

So: parents remember to tell your children; and adults tell each other how much God loves you and me — amen!

The angels sang in a heavenly chorus “together” peace on earth, good will toward men.

Merry Christmas to all!
