Oh what a glorious day
This is my old tattered Bible Story Book that Mama and Daddy gave to me as a small child. So small in fact that I don't know when they did this. We children all enjoyed looking at it and then reading it in later years. I would take nothing for it.
The pictures are beautiful aren't they?
Jesus was born in a stable - the most humble of circumstances. Similarly, Jesus showed us how God's favor rests with the poor and downtrodden. The Gentile wise men came to worship Jesus. Later, the Gentiles would make up most of the Christian world. Herod's attempt to kill Jesus foreshadows His crucifixion about 33 years later.
I wish for all a peaceful, joyful Christmas. What a wonderful gift God gave to us.The best gift of all is the gift of salvation, by faith, believing in Jesus Christ who came into this world to save us all.
