To the editor,

The real gift of Christmas is Jesus Christ. God had a plan for the Virgin Mary, she was chosen to be the Mother of the Son of God. God’s Spirit came down shadow on Mary. Jesus was conceived and born in Bethlehem. We don’t know what month He was born so we celebrate his birthday on Christmas Day. The love that flows at Christmas time should throughout the coming years. This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. A free gift is Jesus Christ for the asking. Repent and believe in Jesus. God loved us and gave his Son for the sins of this world. Jesus was the sacrifice for all of us. Remember the gift and the giver and go to church. He paid the price. He was perfect but we aren’t just forgiven. God gave his only begotten Son, would you do this? Keep Christ in Christmas. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
