We join Pastor David Crespo in God’s Word today as we discover together the truth about what the intent of Christmas is, which is the intent of God. Pastor David shares with us from God’s Word three purposes for Christmas! We start our scripture reading in the Gospel Of Luke chapter two, and read through verses eight through fourteen. Let’s listen in to learn more!
Luke 2:8-14 New King James Version
Glory in the Highest
8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And [a]behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 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. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a [b]manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill[c] toward men!”
a. Luke 2:9 NU omits behold
b. Luke 2:12 feed trough
c. Luke 2:14 NU toward men of goodwill
