The Reason For The Season......

The Birth of Jesus Christ(Lk. 2:1-7)

Matthew 1
18The mother of Jesus Christ was Mary. And this is how the birth of Jesus happened. Mary was engaged to marry Joseph. But before they married, Mary learned that she was pregnant with a child. Mary was pregnant by {the power of} the Holy Spirit. F10 19Mary’s husband, Joseph, was a good man. He did not want to bring shame to Mary before the people. So he planned to divorce her secretly.
20But after Joseph thought about this, an angel of the Lord came to Joseph in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, son of David, F11 don’t be afraid to accept Mary to be your wife. The baby that is in her is from the Holy Spirit. F12 21She will give birth to a son. You will name the son Jesus. F13 Give him that name because he will save his people from their sins.”
22All this happened to make clear the full meaning of the things the Lord said through the prophet F14 : 23“The virgin F15 will be pregnant and will give birth to a son. They will name him Immanuel.” F16 (Immanuel means, “God with us.”)
24When Joseph woke up, he did the thing that the Lord’s angel told him to do. Joseph married Mary. 25But Joseph had no sexual union with Mary until she gave birth to the son. And Joseph named the son Jesus.

Merry Christmas!

Love and Prayers,
