Joyous Christmas

His arrival had been anticipated since Genesis 3. The Old Testament prophets foretold His birth in accurate detail. The self-existent, second person of the Godhead “became flesh and dwelt among us.”[1] …The long-awaited Christ was born!

“Peace on earth and mercy mild; God and sinners reconciled.”[2]

I hope that you join me in proclaiming, “Glory to the newborn King!”

May the peace of Christ be with you this Christmas season and always.
