Jesus is the REASON for the season!
the book of Luke:
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.
And there were in
the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel
of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the
Lord shone round about them: and they were sore
And the angel said
unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all
For unto you is born
this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is
Christ the Lord.
And this [shall be]
a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there
was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the
highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
