Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - Feast of the Nativity of the LORD

No matter how many times that we hear the story of
Christmas, of the birth of Jesus Christ, it is still a wonderful
story and a recounting of God coming among us as man and
being born in a stable. The center of the story is Jesus.
There are, however, others who are part of that story. There
are Mary and Joseph, individuals of faith who trusted in God
and in His word to them. There are the shepherds who first
came to adore the newborn King. There are the angels who
sang the glories of God.
We are invited to be part of that story of Christmas.
We are asked to be people of a practicing faith, of
individuals who come to worship the King and of those who
sing God’s praises each day of our lives.
Isaiah tells us: “a child is born to us; a son is given
to us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name Him
Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of
Peace.” What a gift that we have in this Jesus! He is what
we need! Accept this special gift of Jesus not only on this
day, but also each day of the year. Every day is Christmas
when Jesus is Lord!
