The Christ Is Born
By Mary L. Kupferle
Our hearts rejoice in the birth of Jesus, for it tells us that the story of the Christ child born in Bethlehem is the story of the Christ born within every person.
Listen to the echo of the words: "I am bringing you good news of great joy." Realize this is your own message direct from God to you. Let these glad, good tidings swell into a song of thanksgiving as you awaken to the truth that Christ is born, not only in Jesus of Nazareth, but in you today.
You ae born the beloved of God, worthy of all earth's rejoicing. Glory to God in the highest, for the Christ is born in you.
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for see --- I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people." ----Luke 2:10
