Good News of Great Joy

The message from the angel to the shepherds was one of 'good news of great joy for all the people'.  That day in Bethlehem was born Emmanuel, God with us.  That baby grew and became a man, but more than just a man, he was God in the flesh.  Jesus came to bring to us the greatest gift ever given, the gift of eternal life.  I rejoice this Christmas, not because a baby was born in Bethlehem 2015 years ago, but because through him I can know my creator and his purpose for me.  Take time this Christmas to celebrate the Christ, not as a baby, but as God's Anointed One, come to bring salvation to all who would believe.  Have a joyous celebration.
