Christmas is here. It is the favorite time of year for many people. They enjoy the family time, the tree and the presents, or maybe it’s the snow on the ground and the carols that they hear being played and sung. But it is too easy to get caught up in all the holly and ivy and we forget the thing that makes it all come together: The celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the King.

Perhaps they are telling each other stories to stay awake. Maybe they’re talking about the star that is shining so bright tonight. Or maybe they are looking down at Bethlehem below and watching the lights go out as people are going to sleep all over the town. The city is filled to full capacity tonight because of the census, but it’s getting late and everyone is inside and settling down for the night. It might seem like any other night, but it’s not. There in a stable behind one of the inns, a tiny baby is born to a virgin called Mary. This is the Son of God: The One who was promised from long ago. Is He to come into the world in such a quiet and lowly manner? Not even a bed to lie in? No, indeed! For you see, there are other eye witnesses to this miracle besides Joseph and Mary, when the sky is suddenly filled with angels who proclaim His birth to a few simple shepherds on a hillside...
