Noel Means Birth
Noël: the French word for CHRISTmas, came from the Latin word natalis, meaning 'birth.'
Unto us a Child is born; He shall reign forevermore! Noël, Noël, come and see what God has done!
Matthew 1:18-25 – “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.”

This Child is Love incarnate, Love divine! Star and angels gave the sign; bow to babe on bended knee, the Savior of humanity. Son of God and Son of man, there before the world began. Born to suffer, born to save, born to raise us from the grave. Christ, the everlasting Lord … He shall reign forevermore. Noël, Noël!
