"But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler who will shepherd My people Israel." - Matthew 1 V6
"Through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." - Luke 1 V78, 79
With the season of Christmas around, we see a lot of commercialism and everything except giving God the honour and glory. Christ came down from heaven and He was born in a manger and lived a humble life. He created everything and yet He did not even have a place to lay His head. Friend, this Christmas let us not forget the true meaning of this season. Let us remember the sacrificial giving of our Lord that we may become rich and enter His Kingdom. Christmas is a joyful season but let us celebrate it not as the world sees it but as to bring God the glory and honour, thanking Him for the wonderful gift He gave mankind, to all who believe in His Son Jesus Christ.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
