As you celebrate Christmas and the birth of our living and eternal Savior, may you experience in an even deeper way, the meaning of the “new life” that Jesus born in Bethlehem brings.
*”Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.” Psalm 143:8
O Little Town Of Bethlehem
O Holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend on us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in,
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
Oh come to us, abide in us,
Our Lord Emmanuel! Amen.
“Jesus Christ is a God whom we approach without pride, and before whom we humble ourselves without despair.” Blaise Pascal
*From The One Year Book of Personal Prayer (December 24)
