Luke 2: 1-14 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
The story of the birth of Jesus has been read by billions of people from all over the world at this time of the year. This is just one of the many stories in the Bible that have been proven true. I have done lessons on other subjects, and I have told you of many promises the Lord our God has made, that prove that what the Bible says is true. Everything that the Bible has said of the past has happened. Jesus was born to save the world, and that includes you and me. When He walked the earth, he promised that He would be risen from the dead after His crucifixion. He ascended unto Heaven and promised to return. This promise, like all the others in the Bible will come to pass. If you are already saved, then you’re one step ahead of a multitude of others. If you’re not saved, then you need to know that God loves you. His son, Jesus Christ died and was risen, because He loves you. You can count on the fact that He will return for His people. Are you going to be one of them? If you are not saved, and wish to be, please say this prayer with me:
Heavenly Father, please forgive me of any sins that I may have committed in my life. I believe that You sent Your Son, birthed to a Human woman, to die for our sins. I believe that He was raised from the dead, and that He will return. Please free my soul to accept this gift, and be born again in the light and love of Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ precious and Holy Name…Amen
