Christmas Eve

Hark! The angelic hosts proclaim “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased!” Heaven and earth rejoice on this night because the glory of the blessed Trinity is manifested in the human birth of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. The Father’s grace, mercy and peace rest upon the world in the form of this little child. The silence of death is broken by the “good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” All we who have gone astray like lost and wandering sheep, who have “walked in the darkness” of doubt and fear and sinful unbelief, behold “a great light” in the nativity of Immanuel, “God with us.

In Christ, “the grace of God has appeared.” For this Child of Mary who is born for us, this dear Son of God who is given to us, will bear the burden of our sin and death in His own body on the cross. He thereby establishes a government of peace, “with justice and with righteousness,” which shall have no end; not by any work of any human but by “the zeal of the Lord of hosts.
