For those who celebrate Christmas, how many think of the significance of the words of the carols or the nativity scenes which are used for decoration? nativity

Christmas may have been associated with pagan practices in the past; it may only mean Christmas lights, tinselled trees and gifts to some people; it can be a sad time for the lonely; and yet it can be a beautiful time for those who use it to reflect on the time when a baby was born who was to become a Saviour bringing hope and light to the darkness of the world; the Saviour who will one day return to earth to be King.

Why not read the story this Christmas in Luke chapters 1 & 2? If you don’t have a Bible you can find it in the Online Bible.

Praise God for His love in creation!
