Nativity Message of His Grace Bishop Mitrophan of Eastern America

“But when the fullness of the time had come,
God sent forth His Son, born of a woman,
born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law,
that we might receive the adoption as sons.”
(Gal. 4:4-5)

Dear brothers and sisters,

According to His eternal foreknowledge God determined the time when He will send His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, to save us and bless us with every heavenly blessing. And not only this, but to adopt us as sons through Him (Eph. 1:3-5).
