Mothers for Prodigals

Noel. Shout for joy. Sing praise to God on high. A miraculous birth occurred. A glorious nativity emits good news. The incarnate God dwells on earth. God with us, born to take away the sins of the world. Receive Him and accept forgiveness. Celebrate Christmas. 

From Latin to French to English, the origin of the word noel explains Christmas. It is the celebration of the birth of the God who would leave heaven and come to earth in human flesh to live with His creation—God incarnate. The purpose of His coming was to live and then die as the ultimate sacrifice, to take away the sins of all mankind. The King of Israel offers Himself for the whole world. Worship Him and receive forgiveness of sins. 

Bow on bended knee before Him. In humility receive His amazing sacrificial love. Listen with your heart to the birth announcement from His holy Word. 

There were some shepherds in that part of the country who were spending the night in the fields, taking care of their flocks. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone over them. They were terribly afraid, but the angel said to them, “Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people. This very day in David's town your Savior was born—Christ the Lord! And this is what will prove it to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great army of heaven's angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:

“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!”  Luke 2:8-14 (GNT)

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:16 (NASB)
