“And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:10-12).
Over 2,000 years ago, in the small Middle Eastern town of Bethlehem, a child was born who would change the course of history. And now, many centuries later, people all over the world celebrate Christ’s birth every year at Christmas.
For Christians, Christmas is not merely a seasonal gathering; it’s a beautiful celebration of the best news possible: the glorious reality that Jesus came to save our troubled world.
