Good News for All People
In Luke 2:10-11, the angel of the Lord appears to some shepherds in the fields and announces, “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.”
This message of good news still rings loud and clear for us today. Jesus Christ came from heaven to redeem people. To save us from hell, to rescue us from sin and to deliver us from the consequences of sin. This is the good news that we read in John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”
This is the simplicity and the good news of Christmas. The Father sent His Son, to give eternal life to all people who will believe. Let’s pray.
