New Testament Lesson: Galatians 4:4-7 (Sons of God)
Gospel Lesson: Matthew 2:13-23 (The escape to Egypt and return to Nazareth)

On Christmas, God became flesh in Jesus. But it didn’t take long before sinful mankind’s hostility toward God, and Satan’s forces of evil were out to resist God’s plan of salvation. The jealous King Herod ordered the killing of all baby boys under the age of two in the Bethlehem vicinity, forcing the flight of Mary and Joseph to Egypt. But sinful mankind cannot stop God’s divine plan of salvation! His love for us cannot be overcome.
