DECEMBER 19 – LUKE 2:1-5

12/19          Luke 2:1-5

1 At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire.  2 (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  3All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census.  4 And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. 5 He took with him Mary, his fiancée, who was now obviously pregnant. 


God had decreed before the foundation of the world that He was sending the Messiah.  His love and forgiveness would overpower evil.  

We would be reunited with our Creator, Sustainer, and Lord.  

His Word is without peer.  He knows the end from the beginning. His rule is perfect, and it reaches out to us in perfection.  Jesus is Lord.
