If you listen to the words of the old Christmas Carols you will notice that not only are they heralding the arrival of the Savior, the new born King . . . they are introducing unbelievers to Him.
Joy to the world . . . not just to Christians . . . let earth receive her king. Let every heart prepare Him room. This is an invitation . . . not a commandment.
Even nature is implored to sing His praises.
Joy to the earth, the savior reigns . . . while fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains repeat the sounding joy.
And the message is timeless. In Bethlehem, the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.
When Christ was born, there was no Catholic or Protestant or denominational conflict. Christ fulfilled God’s promise to the Jews, but his salvation is a gift to the entire world.
The most priceless and enduring gift you can share with someone is a personal relationship with the one whose birthday we celebrate today . . . Christ, the newborn King.
This is Nina May and the Renaissance Women wishing you a blessed Christmas.
