THE GOOD TIDINGS OF CHRISTMAS

What a glorious occasion is Christmas. How its coming afresh each year blesses and inspires the heart of humanity. What kind motives and loving deeds it engenders, and how eternal are its promises.

Perhaps no Christmas story ever written is so dear to mankind as the one related in the first chapters of the Gospel of Luke. We see in this account that when the great enlightenment of the Saviour's appearing came to the shepherds who were "keeping watch over their fiock by night," they were at first "sore afraid." We read, "The angel said unto them. Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people." And after describing the good tidings of the Saviour's coming, the narrative continues, "And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
