Unto Us a Child is Born


"Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel", which is translated, "God with us."

"And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room in the inn."

"Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."

On this day, around the world, we celebrate the birth of the Son of God, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who was miraculously born of a virgin in the little town of Bethlehem of Judea over two thousand years ago.

After living a sinless life, Jesus was crucified by the people he had come to save, becoming once and for all the perfect sacrifice for our sins, thereby reconciling us to God.

God has said in the Bible, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

Because of what Jesus did for us, we can joyfully sing along with the angels:

"Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"

Merry Christmas to all, and may God bless you with all good things in 2010 - especially with the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

  1. Thank you so much for being such an important and talented part of bringing more of His Kingdom to our searching earth. The atheistic, hedonistic voices "out there," who so prolifically bombard our media and who are influencing our kids, need the beautiful strains of your music and the hopeful message you bring. God bless you in all you do and enlarge your sphere of influence.
    Your music, which I discovered a few days ago while listening to Pandora Radio,has delighted me over this Christmastime. I cannot wait for your CDs to arrive in the mail!
