A Child is Born!

And with that child is the start of something new.  Can you imagine what it must have been like for a fallen people, mere subjects of the Roman Empire, to know that the Messiah has arrived?  Shepherds out in the cold night; not kings; the flocks they tend are not even their own; but they are the first to hear; the first guests at the royal wedding.  Would they even understand what it all would mean?  Could they imagine that two thousand years later we would still be talking about it?

Heavenly Father,
Through your great mercy and loving kindness you have offered us a way to forgiveness.  Thank you for inviting us to the celebration of this anniversary.  May we have the courage to tell the world that we have accepted your offer of forgiveness through faith in Your Son and our Saviour, Jesus Christ.  It is in His great Name we pray.
Amen
