The Birthday of Peace with God

December 21, 2017
GCT:  I hope that your Christmas season is Joy-Filled.  I want to encourage you to look at the nativity today and let it fill you with JOY.

We have Peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Romans 5:1

Slavery to sin has ended.
The devil confounded.
Demons take flight.
Paradise is unlocked.
The curse is taken away.
The power of death is broken.
Sin is removed from us.
Error is driven out.
Truth has been brought back. 
- John Chrysostom

The birthday of the Lord is the birthday of Peace.  - Leo I

The Son of God did not want to be seen and found in heaven.  Therefore He descended from heaven into this humility and came to us in our flesh, laid Himself into the womb of His mother and into the manger and went on to the cross.  This was the LADDER that He placed on earth so that we might ascend to God on it.  - Martin Luther on Isaiah 9:6

Hark the herald angels sing - Glory to the newborn King.

Joyfully, Steve
