And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:6 – 11)
I can write no more than that which has already been written. I can say no more than that which has already been said. I can do no more than that which has already been done. For on that day in that cradle was the essence of God's love-JESUS, both Lord and Savior! Not only the Gateway to eternal life but, the only gateway. For there is no other name under heaven in which a man can be saved, but the name of JESUS!
