Read Luke 2:8-14: “But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the LORD.’”
GOD’s heavenly messenger brings good news . . . MESSIAH has come . . . The SAVIOR is born!
|This Angel has looked out over us from every
Christmas tree top for my whole life. She was
born some time in the 1940’s.
This is cause for great JOY, not just for some people, but for ALL people. JESUS the Messiah is the Redeemer for ALL who will believes . . . regardless of economic standing, regardless of political leanings, regardless of heritage, regardless of reputation, regardless of the depths of depravity . . . JESUS is the Savior for ALL who believe.
Think of the most exciting Christmas gift you ever received; think of the anticipation you had as you counted down the days; think of the way you kept trying to guess if this was really going to be that gift and the way you built up hope and excitement. And then the day comes and you tear into the package and there it is! It is exactly what you were dreaming of. Obviously, the gift that GOD has given us on Christmas Day eclipses any other Christmas experience or gift of our entire lives.
Like the angels did that night two thousand years ago we rejoice and we give GOD glory and praise for the gift of His Son, JESUS!
Living in great JOY because the Savior, who is Christ the LORD has come!
