The Lord has come! With Christians all over the world, the people of Providence celebrate the coming of the Christ child and wish all men and women of good will peace and good cheer! It is a tremendous blessing to be able to share the good news that the birth of Christ represents anew each year. As the prophet Isaiah foretold:
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Listen! Your sentinels lift up their voices, together they sing for joy; for in plain sight they see the return of the LORD to Zion. Break forth together into singing, you ruins of Jerusalem; for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. The LORD has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
Isaiah 52:7-10. Our God reigns! Rejoice, be glad and share the light of salvation we have in Christ.
