The night that Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, nothing seemed any different from a thousand other nights. But what happen that night would not only transform the lives of those Involved in the first Christmas story but billions of other lives as well. The world would never be the same again. The life of Jesus has been called the greatest story ever told and we are invited to celebrate this.
God who commissioned angels to roll back the night and release a blazing light as a way of an announcement; who set a special star in the sky; who sent a celestial choir to sing before the shepherd invites us to rejoice in the celebration that surrounds this great event.
“The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid I bring you Good news of Great Joy…. a Saviour has been born to you.” Christmas tells us that Jesus came to show us what God is like, to show us that God loves us and wants us to love him. He came to show us how to live a life of love, compassion and forgiveness.
May this Christmas be one when you open your heart and home to the influence of Jesus.
Have a safe and wonderful Christmas – Andrew & Julie
