Christmas is such an exciting time of the year! For those of us who have accepted the ultimate gift, Jesus Christ, Christmas is so much more than the glitz, glamour and gifts. It is about the birth of our Savior! Jesus' birth was prophesied in the Old Testament long before He was born. This baby was born to conquer death, born to save us from our sins, born that we may have everlasting life with Him! It is the gift that has no expiration date, no monetary value, no end. It is the gift that we can share and proclaim to others each day God has given us on this earth. It is the only gift that has changed my life and that can change your life FOREVER!! Christmas is just the beginning of the story!
"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government
and of peace there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it with justice
and with righteousness from this time forth and
forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this."
