Happy Birthday

One thing which unites us all is a date of birth, our own special day, although of course shared with millions of others in the world! God our Heavenly Father regards us as precious because He made us Himself. In fact, each and every one of us was part of His plan in the Creation. He knew us before we were conceived in our mother's womb: you might like to read Psalm 139, especially verses 13 to 16.

Birthday parties can be enjoyed at any age, not just when we are children. Christmas Day celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It is His special day. So we can have Christmas parties, invite friends and relations for mince pies, wine and turkey dinner, and decorate our homes with tinsel, holly and coloured lights.

But amidst all the presents and excitement, it is good to take some time to think quietly about our Lord Jesus and why He was born as a human baby all those years ago. This special story can be found at the beginning of the books of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament.
