Matthew 1:23 The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).
Many will gather to celebrate with family and friends for the Christmas holiday. Some will travel long distances,waiting, and delay after delay just to be near the ones you love. Much time and effort will be spent choosing gifts to exchange on Christmas day. There is no gift that we can give to our family and friends that compares to the gift we have already received. For God so loved the world that He gave His son. John 3:16. What a precious gift the Father gave to us.
As you gather to delight in each other, please remember that Jesus is the reason for the celebration. There is no Christmas without Christ. Thank you Father for giving us the gift of your dear Son.
