And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David (because he was of the house and lineage of David)

To be taxed with Mary, his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Can you really read this enough?

I can always tell when I'm reading it the right makes me cry.

From humble beginnings came the Savior of the world, the literal Son of God.

He came to live and die for each of us. His love is immeasurable, and His example is perfect.

I hope I can do something to follow that example this Christmas. Will you join me?

He is our Savior. He lived and walked this earth, and He still lives today. I believe this with all of my heart, mind, and strength.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Merry Christmas!
