As we celebrate this joyous Christmas Day, we have thanksgiving in our hearts and praise on our lips. We celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is my fervent prayer today, as you gather with family and friends, that it will be a day filled with spontaneous praise! Jesus is indeed the ‘Reason for the Season,” regardless of what may be under your tree. Take the time to give God thanks for the Babe of Bethlehem, the same way that Mary did. In Luke Luke 1:46, we find these words:
“Mary responded, ‘Oh, how my soul praises the Lord’.”
Mary had a song in her heart. She rejoiced because the child that was born on this day would surely be a blessing to the world. Mary gave a virgin birth to the Savior, Jesus, who would bring salvation for all. We rejoice with her today because the Savior has come. We sing “Joy to the World, the Lord has come!”Shout for joy! Praise His Holy Name! Magnify and worship Him! Praise Him! We have reason to celebrate because Christ has come that we might have life forevermore! Have a blessed and joyful Christmas. May the peace that Christ brings be in your hearts today, and may His blessings flow to you and your family!
