“but the angel re-assured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Saviour – yes, the Messiah, the Lord – has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!””
Rejoice, it is Christmas day. A time to celebrate the goodness of all life has to offer. A time to let go of hurts, forgive and be reconciled to loved ones. A time to eat, drink and be merry. A time to give to those who are less fortunate. But also a time to remember those who don’t have, who live in poverty, without homes, without warmth or clean water. To remember those who are living through war and disease and those battling with loneliness.
Today, as we celebrate Christmas across the world, let us rejoice in the good news that Jesus was born and that through Him we can find peace in war-torn societies, shelter from life’s hardships, Spiritual wealth, healing, both physically and spiritually, and an identity and belonging in Christ.
Today, may you know the warmth of Jesus’ love, the acceptance of a Saviour and the joy that His birth brings. For it is in Jesus that our hope is found. Remember those who don’t have in your prayers and actions. Be blessed. Merry Christmas.
