                                                        Celebrating Christmas

Both Matthew and Luke tell us the story of Christmas, each in his own way.  Matthew tells us of the visit of the wise men while Luke tells of the shepherds leaving their sheep and making the journey to Bethlehem to see the new born King.

Both tell us that Jesus was born in the city of Bethlehem of Judea.  Both tell us that a virgin conceived and bore a Son who would be called Jesus and who would be the Messiah, the Son of God.    On that first Christmas Jesus entered our world to bring us salvation from and the promise of eternal life through faith in Him.

Christmas is not just beautifully decorated trees and gifts for Children.  Christmas is the Birthday of Jesus.  We are invited to make our own spiritual journey to Bethlehem and to worship this Child who came into our world to give us hope and eternal life.  Invite Him into your heart today.
