DAILY READINGS: Nehemiah 13:1-31; Zechariah 9:1-10:12; Revelation 17:1-18

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given. Isaiah 9:6

Today we remember the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord. He came into this world as a babe and being “made in the likeness of men…he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death” (Phil. 2:7-8) that He might save us from our sins. Jesus was the Son given by God to demonstrate how much He loved the world. “Whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16, NKJV). Our best response is to accept Him as our Saviour and to rejoice in God’s unspeakable gift to us! —K. C. Ung

To us a child of hope is born, to us a Son is giv’n,
Him shall the tribes of earth obey, Him all the hosts of heav’n.
His name shall be the Prince of Peace, forevermore adored,
The Wonderful, the Counselor, the great and mighty Lord. —J. Morrison
