    And behold an angel of The Lord stood before them, and the glory
    of The Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.
    Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold,
    I bring you good tidings of great joy, which will be to you and
    all people.
    “For there is born to you this day in the city of David, a Savior,
    who is Christ The Lord.
    “And this will be the sign to you, You will find a Babe wrapped
    in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
    And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly
    host praising God and saying:

    “Glory to God in the Highest,
    And on earth, peace, goodwill toward
    (Luke 2:9-14)

    Jesus Christ has come into the world, to save sinners from the wrath of God,
    to save us from death, to give us eternal life, to have a relationship with us,
    to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. He came because He
    loves us. He came to give us The Comforter, The Holy Spirit. He came to reconcile us back to God The Father. He came to break the power of sin. No greater Gift has there ever been than The Gift of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Excellent work, Pam. Thank-you for sharing your work with Mustard Seeds.
    May Almighty God continue to use you to glorify His Holy Name.

  • Thank you for sharing the loving words from the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:)
