“I go to the manger of Bethlehem and gaze on the infant Savior. My faith staggers, and I exclaim, ‘Is this the Son of God?’ Retiring, I track that infant’s steps along its future path. I mark the wisdom He displayed and I behold the wonders He worked. I mark the revelations He disclosed, the doctrines He explained, the precepts He taught, the magnanimity He displayed. I follow Him to Gethsemane, to the judgment-hall, and then to Calvary, and I witness the closing scene of wonder. I return to Bethlehem and, with the evidences my hesitating faith has thus collected, I exclaim, with the awestruck and believing centurion, ‘Truly this was [is] the Son of God!'” (ref#135, Dec 25th).
