This Christmas, let us listen again to the angels’ story. The infant Jesus is God’s gift to a needy world. The child in the manger is the Christ who died for every one of us on the cross — who can forgive our sins, bring new life and new power over the violence, crime, and evils of our day.
Let us listen carefully to the angels’ words that continue to offer us hope:
“Fear not,” the angels said on that starry night in Bethlehem. “For I bring you good news of great joy, which shall be for all the people. For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Billy Graham (circa 1995)
