The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11 NIV)
Read Luke 1 and 2, and marvel at the sovereign work of our Father, sending His Son, our Savior, into this world. He did it for us, to be our Redeemer. Weep at the sheer power of God’s amazing grace and the greatness of His eternity-shaping plan. When you celebrate Christmas this year, may you enjoy His sovereign grace, and clearly sense His steadfast love for you.
“…there’s nothing like creating the real Christmas spirit by focusing on just why you need a Savior—why you desperately need Jesus. Oh, thank you Jesus for coming and bringing your light into our dark world.” —Joni Eareckson Tada
