Luke 2:11 (NKJV) For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
The Incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ was good tidings of great joy for all people, the angel of the Lord said to the shepherds. And they excitedly hurried to Bethlehem. And when they found Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger, they told of all the things that the angels said to them, causing considerable surprise among those who had gathered in the stable. “But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19 NKJV). Did Mary know? Did she know that her baby boy will save our sons and daughters? As the song goes. Did she know that her baby boy is the Lord of all creation, the great I Am, who came to deliver her and make her new? For God’s plan of salvation through His Son Jesus Christ was foreknown before the foundation of the world. God sent His Son because God knew that we would need a Savior, and He loved us enough to give us His Son. This is what 1 Peter 1:20 is talking about. “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given” (Isaiah 9:6 NKJV). Christ was the perfect Lamb of God who was slain for our sake. God provided for us a Savior, because of His great big heart of love. God reconciled the world unto Himself through the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ. It is by grace alone through Christ alone that we are saved. This is the purpose of Christ’s first coming. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV). God will welcome with open arms all who come to Him with a repentant heart. Jesus continues to seek out the lost and save those who humbly place their faith in Him. Come to Jesus my friend, accept God’s free gift of Salvation, accept His Son Jesus Christ and be saved.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
