The Christmas Story: Day 10

Then suddenly there was a blaze of light – so bright, the men had to shield their eyes. And out of the brightness came the voice of God’s messenger angel.

“Don’t be afraid. I’ve come with good news – for you and all the world. The Saviour has come – God’s promised King – born today in Bethlehem. You will find the baby asleep in a manger.”
