Merry Christmas! Spread The Good News!

Soon we all will be celebrated the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, who was born in a manger a long time ago. We celebrate his birth on Christmas sometimes as if it was simply tradition. However, the Bible says that on the night of his birth the universe came alive and rejoiced.

A strange star appeared in the sky over Bethlehem that night and legend says it was the brightest star anyone has ever seen. Angels even descended upon shepherds who were watching over their flocks and told them to rejoice for our savior was born this day. A group of angels shouted out from the hills surrounding Bethlehem, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"

What were the angels celebrating that night? Why were they so happy for mankind on earth and telling everyone to Rejoice! Rejoice!? I say that the angels were celebrating what all of us seem to celebrate on Christmas, the birth of a new spirit of love and kindness for our fellow man that collectively would conquer the evils of this earth. That my friend is the true meaning of Christmas Spirit.

So this Christmas I say to my family and friends Rejoice! Rejoice! For a savior has been born this day that will spread God's message of love and peace. May this Christmas be filled with all the love and joy you can stand. May God be with and bless you and shine his Grace down upon you.

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 tidings o great joy, which shall be to all my 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 the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men."
