God's love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. I John 4: 9 NRSV
Tonight many of us will go to our church or a local worshiping community and celebrate the birth of Christ. Carols, candles and communion will be part of our worship as we glorify God and thank God for the birth of Christ. We celebrate this gift of life and our gift of life that we receive through Christ. May we all be thankful this Christmas for this gift of life everlasting.
God, thank you for Christmas Eve and all the pageantry that surrounds this night. Help us even in this time of celebration to be grateful for the gift of life you have given us through Jesus Christ. In His name we pray. Amen.
