"For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation."
The Lutheran Church of Our Savior believes this 'Good News' and rejoices that Christ was born for us and died for us. The angel said to Joseph, "you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21
For this we are thankful.

Season of the Church Year: Time Of Christmas
The Time of Christmas has three parts. It begins with the season of Advent. It is a time of preparation for the coming of Christ, both His coming in the incarnation at Christmas and for His second coming at the end of the world as King and Judge. God's promise to redeem His people is not a haphazardly conceived afterthought; our adoption as sons and daughters of God in Christ follows a deliberate, eternal, and certain divine plan, consistently foretold by the prophets and now revealed in its fulness by the apostles and evangelists. "Hosanna!" Oh, Lord save us now.
After Advent comes Christmas which is the season in which we hear the "glad tidings of great joy" that the Savior of the world is born. The coming of God into human flesh, the Incarnation, means God is not far off, but near. Immanuel has come to save us from our sins.
The season of Epiphany begins by commemorating the visit of the Gentile Wise Men to the Savior Jesus.There is great rejoicing and gladness since the light of the world is revealed to the nations. This revelation emphasis continues, as the Gospel readings depict how Jesus revealed Himself in word and deed. This season includes the Baptism of Jesus when our Father's voice was heard from heaven saying, "this is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased."
The Epiphany season ends with the festival of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, when Jesus revealed His divine glory to His disciples.
