"A Savior is Born"

December 26, 2003

Email to a FriendPrint

“A Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11

SCRIPTURE REFLECTION

The message of the angel is not equaled. God’s Son was born into the world to be our Savior. This is “good news of great joy.”

THE JOURNEY—DAY 27
Chuck was home alone the day after Christmas. Bobby had stayed with his mother and would not be back until evening. He thought about what a good friend Bill had become. He still couldn’t believe he had brought cookies and the manger the day before.

Chuck picked up the manger and began to read “The Christmas Story” from Luke 2 on the back:

“And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus … she brought forth her firstborn Son… and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn …Then the angel said to[the shepherds], “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord … and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (NKJV)

Chuck began to think about his situation. His wife had left him. His parents were across the country. He felt so alone. He was afraid, not knowing what was going to happen. He wondered if Jesus could help. “I could really use some joy and peace and everything else the angel said. I could really use a savior!”

REALITY JOURNEY
Everyone needs the Savior, Jesus. Not everyone realizes it. That realization comes through the Word of God and the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Share the Word of God with someone who needs a Savior.

PRAYER FOCUS
Pray for the opportunity to give the Word of God to someone who needs Jesus as Savior.
