Give Me Jesus, Jeremy Camp
Matthew 1:18-25 ESVNow the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
Jesus, the light of the world, stepped down into darkness over 2000 years ago to give us freedom from the sin that binds us to this world. He is lovely, wonderful and our hope in this dark and dreary world.
Happy Birthday Jesus Christ!!
Merry CHRISTmas my blogging friends! Hoping and praying this will be a day filled with worship and joy, glad tidings, family and peace. But even if this is a day filled with loneliness, confusion and sadness, I pray you will feel the peace that only Jesus Christ can bring, one of hope for life eternal away from the misery of this world.
Matthew 2:11 ESVAnd going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.
