The Savior Has Come!

The angelic proclamation that night long ago ended the wait of God’s people. Their Deliverer had come. He was the promised Messiah. And He would be more than a man. He would be “the Lord.” But Jesus would not become an earthly ruler at His first advent. He would become a sacrifice. He would not deliver from human oppression, but sin’s bondage. The message of the angel resounds through the centuries to us today. We need a Savior to forgive us and free us from sin. We need the Lord of all to come and rule with peace and purpose in our lives. Do what the shepherds did and seek the Savior. Do what angels did and praise God for His gracious favor. The Savior has come! He has come for you.
