This nativity set came with a story (The Story). This beautiful ceramic set is filled with characters from the Peanuts comic strip. (Woodstock sitting on the end of the manger gives that away.) And on the base below each of the characters is part of the biblical story. “For unto you is born a Savior” is printed below the babe in the hay. And that is so true!
2 In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 All went to their own towns to be registered. 4 Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. 5 He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
Thank You, God, for sending a Savior for me. I accept the gift on Christmas, and every day. Amen.
