The Nativity of the Lord

John 1:1-18 

Is Jesus any more welcome in our world than he was the world of the first century? The answer is “probably not”. His purpose is still the same. The only thing he promises to change is you and me. There still are no magic solutions to the ills of society, no easy salvation from the sins that would ruin our lives. But to those who receive him he still gives the power to become children of God. Come, Lord, Jesus!
