Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

As we approach the Christmas season, there have been num-
erous questions surrounding the traditions. "Is it wrong
to celebrate Christmas? I was told that it is pagan."
"Should I teach my children about Santa Claus?" "Should
I have a Christmas tree?"

The structure of "Positive, Encouraging & Inspirational
Messages" does not allow me fully to address these issues,
but hopefully I can give you enough guidance, that you,
(with the help of the Holy Spirit), can find the answers
yourself. And, as always, I will not tell you what to
do. God will show you, if you ask Him.

Each day of this week, I will attempt to address some of
these issues. Firstly, the Bible specifically does NOT
tell us the date of
Jesus' birth. We do know that the
shepherds were out in the fields
with their flocks at
night. There is nothing in
the Bible about celebrating December 25.

God Bless You!

Q. What good news did an angel of the Lord bring to
the priest Zacharias?

Answer below.

--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:

The coming of Christ by way of a Bethlehem manger seems
strange and stunning. But when we take Him out of the
manger and invite Him into our hearts, then the meaning
unfolds and the strangeness vanishes.

--FEATURED HYMN:

Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th'angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem!
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the new-born King!

Charles Wesley
