In all the different times I have heard “The Christmas Story” this is by far my favorite. Simple, to the point. The complete passage can be found in Luke 2 At Luke 2:10 the angel states “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”
Everyone. Not just a few, not just one or two, but for ALL PEOPLE. That’s one of the things I love about my Jesus. He is an equal opportunity Savior. Not based on skin color, height, weight, hair color, eye color, politcal or economic views. All based on your heart.
I pray your heart is filled with the love and joy that today holds and if I could give you one gift it would be that every day would be Christmas for everyone. Think how much better the world would be if we celebrated Jesus every day.
Happy Birthday to my Lord and Savior. Thank you for giving us the most important gift of all, You.
Merry Christmas everyone.
