MERRY CHRISTMAS!!December 25, 2020
Daily Prayer for December 25th, 2020Â
Merry Christmas, Godâthank you! đ
Today and every day, I celebrate the birth of your Son, Jesus. Christmas (the Mass of Christ) comes from communion (Eucharist), where we Christians remember that Jesus died for our sins and came back to life. No one knows the exact date that Jesus was born, but this date was set for friends and family to come together, and feast remembering the blessings we have and the most special gift of allâJesus Christ. â€
Luke 2:11 ESV
11Â ForÂ unto you is born this day inÂ the city of DavidÂ a Savior, who isÂ ChristÂ the Lord.
Matthew 2:1-11 ESV
The Visit of the Wise Men
2Â NowÂ after Jesus was born inÂ Bethlehem of JudeaÂ in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise menÂ fromÂ the east came to Jerusalem,Â 2Â saying, âWhere is he who has been bornÂ king of the Jews? For we sawÂ his star when it roseÂ and have come toÂ worship him.âÂ 3Â When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him;Â 4Â and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them whereÂ the Christ was to be born.Â 5Â They told him, âIn Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:
6Â ââAnd you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for from you shall come a ruler
who willÂ shepherd my people Israel.ââ
7Â Then Herod summoned the wise men secretly and ascertained from them what time the star had appeared.Â 8Â And he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, âGo and search diligently for the child, and when you have found him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship him.âÂ 9Â After listening to the king, they went on their way. And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was.Â 10Â When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.Â 11Â And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures,Â they offered him gifts,Â gold andÂ frankincense andÂ myrrh.
