Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth … Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem…in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Today the Lord is reminding you how carefully He guided human history to make a way for you to find forgiveness and start a new life in relationship with Him!
