"Then she gave birth to her firstborn Son, and she wrapped Him snugly in cloth and laid Him in a manger - because there was no room for them and the inn. In the same region, shepherds were staying out in the fields and keeping watch at night over their flock. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angle said to them "don't be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you food news of great joy that will be for all the people: today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David. THis will be the sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped snugly in cloth and lying in a manger" Suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest heaven and peace on earth to people He favors!' When the angels had left them and returned to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, 'Let's go straight to Bethlehem and see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.' They hurried off and found both Mary and Joseph, and the baby who was lying in the feeding trough. After seeing them, they reported the message they were told about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary was treasuring up all these things in her heart and meditating on them. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had seen and heard, just as they had been told." - Luke 2: 1-20
"But when the completion of of the time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And Because you are sons, God has sent the SPirit of His Son into our hearts crying, 'Abba Father!' So that you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God." Galations 4:4-7
