The Baby is Born! – A Love Letter from God

The Birth of Jesus the Messiah

“Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit.  Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly.  But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’ All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 ‘Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel’, which means, ‘God is with us.’  When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, (Matthew 1:18-24 NRSV)

Jesus’ birth was a love letter from God to each and every one of us.  The songwriter penned, (1) “Love came down at Christmas, love all lovely, Love divine; love was born at Christmas, star and angels gave a sign. (2) Love shall be our token, love be yours and love be mine, Love to God and all men, love for plea and gift and sign.”
