“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”
For the people of old this was great news! The long awaited Messiah, Redeemer, and Savior had finally been born. Angels announced His birth, shepherds ran to see Him in a lowly stable and later wisemen traveled many miles to visit Him in an humble home. But still others did not accept Him or want to know Him.
This and every Christmas season, the story of Jesus’ birth is told anew. Two thousand plus years later the message is still the same. God’s Son still calls people from all walks of life to come to Him. Those that will accept this invitation receive the free gift of salvation.
Jesus came to love, to heal, to redeem and to save. His children must share His light with others. We must show His compassion and kindness in our daily walk and we must live so that others will see that we reflect the love of the greatest gift ever to mankind — Jesus Christ!
