Jesus’ Birthday

While they were there,

the time came for the baby to be born,

and she gave birth to her firstborn,

a son.

She wrapped him in cloths

and placed him in a manger,

because there was no guest room available for them.

~Luke 2:6-7~

 

The Christmas Eve service at FBC, Kentwood was wonderful – beautiful decorations, inspiring Scriptures, Lord’s Supper, Christmas carols, many candles, children singing, plenty of Christmas hugs,  full house, and a “sweet, sweet spirit”!  Happy birthday, Jesus!

I know churches will be full today.  Find your place in your church or another church to honor Jesus on His birthday!

Read some of the Scriptures that tell about Jesus’ birth as a family today.

Scripture Writing – Luke 2: 17-20 

17 After the shepherds had seen him, they told everyone. They reported what the angel had said about this child. 18 All who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary kept all these things like a secret treasure in her heart. She thought about them over and over. 20 The shepherds returned. They gave glory and praise to God. Everything they had seen and heard was just as they had been told.
