Light into a dark world of oppression and suffering

The world is filled with grief and sadness and only through the coming of Christ born in Bethlehem came the Light of gladness.

He came a Light into a dark world of oppression and suffering where tyrants ruled with fists of iron in a land suffering under the horrible oppression of the Roman emperor who thought of himself as a god.

The Angel of God from Heaven declared that night to the poor shepherds, "do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which shall be to all the people; for today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you, who is Christ the Lord."

Suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among men of good will."

Brethren, it is only through Christ that the light of joy can be in our lives.
