“Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them. When eight days were completed for his circumcision, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel before he was conceived.”
- We are reminded that Isaiah’s prophecy of God sending us a Savior is fulfilled as this “newborn child” is named “Jesus” (meaning savior).
- Recall that he is the Savior of every person who lived, lives or ever will live.
- Today pray in gratitude for such a loving God.
Heritage word—“Contemplating the birth of Jesus challenges us to look at our own life and choices.”
