To the readers of Try2Focus, friends on Facebook and those following me on Twitter – Merry Christmas!
On this day of celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, let us remember these words from Isaiah, chapter 9.
6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Last night many of us likely sang “Silent Night, Holy Night” at church in candlelight. Those candles served as a reminder to us all. In the 11:00 pm service I attended these words were spoken by the Pastor during the candle lighting:
“As the light of these candles illumines our faces, it reminds us of Christ, our Light, the child in the manger at Bethlehem, a Savior suffering our death on the cross, and soon to come from His throne on high as Judge of all. He is our Light here on earth and the eternal Light who enlightens heaven, where there is no need of candle or sun. Rejoice! The Light of the World has come. That light transforms us with the brightness of His glory.”
Remember to shout it from the mountaintops and throughout the land – that Jesus Christ is born!
Christmas blessings to all as you celebrate the true meaning of Christmas today.
