Get fa­mil­iar with Je­sus’ birth story

Pilbara News - - Opinion -

I was in the shop­ping cen­tre last week pick­ing up food do­na­tions for our Christ­mas Ham­pers and try­ing to find a present for my wife.

I could hear the mu­sic and knew straight away the carol, it was quite a spe­cial mo­ment. You know some­times we take the carols for granted. I used to be­cause ev­ery year I would be play­ing them in The Sal­va­tion Army band, some­times on the back of a truck car­olling around the neigh­bour­hood.

But as I have grown older, I’ve re­alised that they tell a great story, yes, the story from God’s word the Bible, the story of Christ­mas, the story of why Je­sus came into the world.

I en­cour­age each of you to read the ac­count of Je­sus com­ing into the world, the rea­son why. It wasn’t all easy for his earthly par­ents but they per­se­vered, they did as God had asked and were blessed. I hope you are blessed this Christ­mas by bless­ing oth­ers, by help­ing some­one, by even thank­ing God for the gift of giv­ing. Niall Gib­son Kar­ratha Sal­va­tion Army Cap­tain
