The angel said to Mary, “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.”
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
How can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them?
