Every year millions of Americans transform their homes into a festival of Christmas decorations. Reminders of the holiday seem to be everywhere. May we always be reminded of the true reason for the celebration. Scripture tells us in Luke 1:30-33 that the angel Gabriel revealed these things to Mary, the mother of Jesus, “…Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” The book of Daniel tells us of the coming of the Son of God, and the birth of Christ is the promise kept. There are many blessing that we can celebrate but there is no greater blessing than the love of God transforming the hearts of men. Merry Christmas to all.
