Glory to God in the Highest!

Every Christmas we find meaning and incredible joy to realize that Jesus was born and came to us to be our Savior and our Lord.  How in our wildest dreams could this possibly be?  We want to be like Mary who submitted her will to God’s will and whose soul glorified God,

like Joseph who listened and obeyed,

like the shepherds who, when they heard the great announcement, hurried to find Jesus,

and, finally, like the Magi – the Wise Men who traveled by night following a star for many miles to seek Him.

We love our nativity – we love Christmas, but even more, we love Jesus Christ – because without Him this would all be meaningless.  We have much to celebrate for “in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”

Matthew 1 / Luke 2
