At the White House last week, President Donald Trump shared an impactful Christmas message to Americans reminding them of the reason for the season.
“For Christians, this is a joyous time to remember God’s greatest gift to the world. More than 2,000 years ago, the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary. He said, ‘Do not be afraid, you have favor with God,’” President Trump said.
“The angel told her that she would give birth to a baby boy, Jesus, who would be called the Son of the Most High. Nine months later, Christ was born in the town of Bethlehem. The Son of God came into the world in a humble stable,” Trump said before adding that Christmas is a time to give thanks to God.
“As Christians everywhere know, the birth of our Lord and Savior changed history forever,” Trump continued. “At Christmas, we give thanks to God, and that God sent His only Son to die for us and to offer everlasting peace to all humanity.
“More than two millennia after the birth of Jesus Christ, His teachings continue to inspire and uplift billions and billions of people all over the globe,” Trump said. “His divine words still fills our hearts with hope and faith.”
Trump also insisted that Christmas was a time for Americans to show love and kindness to one another.
“And Christians everywhere still strive to live by Jesus’s timeless commandments to His disciples: love one another. Above all during this sacred season, our souls are full of thanks and praise for [the] Almighty God for sending us Christ, his Son, to redeem the world,” he said.
Before concluding, he asked everyone to join him in prayer.
“Tonight we ask that God will continue to bless this nation and we pray that He will grant every American family a Christmas season full of joy, hope, and peace.”
