*The Christmas Story*

Isaiah 9:6-7 NLT
[6] For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. [7] His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven's Armies will make this happen!
以賽亞書 9章6-7節 (NCV)
因為有一個嬰孩為我們而生,有一個兒子賜給我們;政權必擔在他的肩頭上;他的名必稱為“奇妙的策士、全能的 神、永恆的父、和平的君”。

John 3:16-17 NLT
[16] "For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. [17] God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
約翰福音 3章16-17節 (NCV)
神愛世人,甚至把他的獨生子賜給他們,叫一切信他的,不至滅亡,反得永生。因為 神差他的兒子到世上來,不是要定世人的罪,而是要使世人藉著他得救。
