The Birth of Jesus Christ
He left a crown in heaven to serve as a humble sacrifice on earth.
Now God sent an angel to a young lady named Mary. The angel told her she would have a baby and that the baby would be God's Son. The angel said God's Son would save all who trusted Him from their sins. Mary was very happy.
Just before the Baby was to be born, Mary and Joseph, who was to be Mary's husband, had to go to Bethlehem. But Bethlehem was so crowded that the only place they could find to sleep was in a stable for animals.
That night, baby Jesus, God's Son, was born.
An angel appeared to shepherds in nearby fields. The angel told them that the Son of God had been born that night. He told them they would find the baby in a manger in Bethlehem.
Suddenly there were angels everywhere, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in heaven, and peace to all people who love Him!"
The shepherds immediately went to Bethlehem to see the Baby.
And then they told everyone about the things they had heard and seen!
