Luke 2:1-20 The Birth of Jesus

2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.  (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.  He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.  While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,  and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,  and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Father, thank you for Jesus, the Light of the World. As we prepare to celebrate your birth may we see the world and the people in it as you see them. You chose the lowly, the outcasts and the poor to bring forth the greatest blessing this world has ever known.

The world has tried to snuff your light out by the busyness of the season. Today, we ask you to forgive each of us for when we bought into the world’s lies. Oh God, you said in your Word that you choose the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. (1 Corinthians 1:27)

All across this globe today, we give you thanks for the birth of Jesus. Thank you for Mary and Joseph, that they were willing and obedient. May we be carriers of your presence where ever our journey takes us.

Today, help us to see in a deeper way the gift of life you have given this world. Help up to be your obedient servants. Help us not to get caught in the web of the riches of this world. Thank you for the miraculous birth. Amen

Have A Blessed Day, For this is the Day the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it.
