For Unto YOU
I heard one of my pastors give some encouraging words at a recent luncheon. Pastor Barry's words meant a lot during this time of hustle and bustle! He asked if people were feeling stressed and ready for the holidays to be over. Some were ready for it to be over because fof the busyness and some because their spouses are in Heaven this year. For those of us feeling tired, it is because this is what the world tells us the season is about. Shop til you drop, get your tinsel in a tangle and deck the halls and not your family!
No matter our circumstances we can look to Luke 2: 11 for comfort. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” This is our reason for the season. What is a savior? According to the Oxford dictionary, a savior is “a person who saves someone or something from danger.
In Christianity, a Savior is “God or Jesus Christ as the redeemer of sin and saver of souls.” Do we have room in our lives for this Savior? A Savior who helps us in danger or difficulty. As Pastor Barry said, we don’t have to look to our bank account or our government for help. Our Savior is here for a time such as this. He is here to help us during this Advent season. And He came for you and for me! Our personal Lord and Savior!
Let’s remember the good news of great joy! Luke 2: 10, “I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.” Jesus is the reason for the season.
Unto YOU is born a Savior!
