Whoever is among us of all God’s people, may the Lord God be with us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. He will be King of kings and Lord of lords forever. Praise His Name, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, ‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you of all his people, may the Lord his God be with him. Let him go up.’” (2 Chronicles 36:23 ESV)
