Remembering the birth of Jesus

Oh, God….
help us rightly to remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the songs of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the wise men. And may Christmas morning make us happy to be your children.

John MacArthur on his radio show had a really good idea. In Luke 2 when it is mentioned that “the glory of the Lord shown about them”, he thought the light was the literal presence of God emanating from the sky. MacArthur figured that God would have been so excited to announce the birth of Jesus that He did it Himself. MacArthur made some Old Testament references to man not being able “to look upon Him” do to the intensity of the radiant light/energy. Makes sense to me.  – Jim Roach

  1. Google’s ‘message’ on 12/25 was “Happy Holiday”. Happy Holiday? I know on “Kwanza” they marked that day. For Hanukkah they marked that day. But for Christmas we get “Happy Holiday”? Good grief.
