The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
Good news of great joy is given to ALL people. We have heard that said so many times, we take it for granted, but we sometimes have a hard time believing it. We exclude either ourselves or other people from the good news and we certainly forget that we are in need of a savior. All people need a savior and Jesus came for all people, especially the lost, who seem the most distant from him.
We need a savior. We are lost and helpless without Jesus Christ and so is everybody else. Glory to God for sending us a savior for all people. Let us humbly bring that message to everyone we meet this holiday season.
