Letter to the editor: Be ready when the Christ of Christmas comes to earth again

Wednesday, December 25, 2013 - 12:01 am

Merry Christmas everyone!

Take time. Read the account of the birth of Christ in Matthew and Luke, both chapters 1 and 2.

She will give birth to a son, Jesus-Emmanuel, which means God with us. (Matthew 1:23)

“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” (John 1:29)

Don’t miss the main characters: Mary and Joseph, the angel’s proclamation, shepherds, Elizabeth and Zachariah, John the Baptist, the wise men, Simeon and Anna, and the wicked King Herod.

As Christians, our faith is built on this Christ, the Son of God. One day, it may be soon, he will return to set up his kingdom. (Revelation 21)

Be Ready.
