REJOICE: Remembering the Birth of our King

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David;to enroll himself with Mary, who was betrothed to him, being great with child. 

Traveling to Bethlehem

And it came to pass, while they were there, the days were fulfilled that she should be delivered.  And she brought forth her firstborn son; and she wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. 

Baby Jesus Born

And there were shepherds in the same country abiding in the field, and keeping watch by night over their flock.  And an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

Shepherds in Fields

And the angel said unto them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people:  for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.  And this is the sign unto you: Ye shall find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, and lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased.  And it came to pass, when the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing that is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

Found in a Manger

And they came with haste, and found both Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger.  And when they saw it, they made known concerning the saying which was spoken to them about this child.  And all that heard it wondered at the things which were spoken unto them by the shepherds.

May God bless you this Christmas Season!
