Jesus’ Life (2)

1476428400The prophet Micah wrote, “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, are the smallest town in Judah…but the ‘Ruler of Israel’ will come from you to rule for me” (Micah 5:2). This verse tells us that God’s Son would be born in Bethlehem. And our Bible Reading from Luke today says that Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
We know where Jesus was born, but we do not know the exact date. Bible scholars have debated for many years about when Jesus was born. Many people have chosen to celebrate Jesus’ birth on December 25th.
But we can celebrate Jesus’ birth every day of the year! We should remember that without Jesus, we are lost and have no hope. Jesus came to earth to be the Savior of the world!
Take some time today to celebrate Jesus! Thank God for sending Jesus to accept the punishment for your sins. Share your thanks and joy with other people.
