The Reason for the Season

Merry Christmas to you!! We are loving a beautiful day in Oak City, UT the Murdock family. 

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is hearing the story of Christ's birth. It is such an amazing truth that the King of kings humbled himself by coming to earth--for me! The story in scripture and the words of the carols we have been singing this season have been such a great reminder of the salvation we enjoy because Jesus was born, lived, and died to save lowly sinners like me!

Gloria Deo! Sin’s power is dead.
Jesus, though bruised, crushed the serpent’s foul head!
Seed of the woman, Redeemer of men,
Vanquishes Satan! We sing out again—

Gloria Deo! The sinner may live!
Joyous the news heaven’s messengers give.
Peace to the fallen but favored Christ brings.
“Glory to God!” let the church loudly sing!

"Gloria Deo"

 Joy has dawned upon the world
Promised from creation
God's salvation now unfurled
Hope for every nation

"Joy Has Dawned"

  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
 “Glory to God in the highest,
    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Luke 2:11-14

  "She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 

Matthew 1:21
