Will you be surprised, that here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will be addressing the issue of Jesus being born?
Hopefully, it will be just as important to you, as it is to me.
God's Word, the Bible tells us that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Thank You!
For this reason, I've decided to share with you O Little Town Of Bethlehem. Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mx6bTo-g3M. The lyrics are below.
O Little Town Of Bethlehem
o little town of Bethlehem
how still we see thee lie
above thy deep and dreamless sleep
the silent stars go by
yet in thy dark streets shineth
the everlasting light
the hopes and fears of all the years
are met in Thee tonight
for Christ is born of Mary
and gathered all above
while mortals sleep, the angels keep
their watch of wandering love
o morning stars, together
proclaim the Holy birth
and praises sing to God the King
and peace to men on earth
o holy child of Bethlehem!
descend to us, we pray
cast out our sin and enter in
be born in us today
we hear the Christmas angels
the great glad tidings tell
o come to us, abide with us
our Lord Emmanuel!
our Lord Emmanuel!
Just as we read and/or heard in the lyrics, Jesus Christ is born of Mary... in Bethlehem.
God's Word, the Bible, confirms this.
Just as we read, in Luke 2:4-7, "And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn."
Knowing that God gave us the information we need to know, I am so truly grateful. And, always will be.
Yes, I realize that the Bible doesn't tell us the exact date of when Jesus was born. So, I realize that someone may not want to celebrate Christmas.
However, Jesus is my Lord. I love Him. And, always will.
So, I will always look forward to celebrating His birth.
Until next time...
