It’s Christmas Eve! So let’s dive right in and think about that little baby born in Bethlehem, Jesus Christ!
First, the ornament:
It’s supposed to be Jesus, wrapped up in swaddling.
Now, let’s get right to the story!
The Nativity of Christ
4And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, 5to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.
6While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock. 9The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.
10The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.
One last Jesse Tree reading to officially ring in Christmas tomorrow!
In the meantime, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!
