December 22, 2019: Jesus, Our Savior...
"But 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)
Jesus underwent a human birth
so we might have a heavenly birth.
Jesus took His place in an earthly manger
so we might dwell in a heavenly mansion.
Jesus became a member of a human family
so we might become members of God's family.
Jesus made Himself subject to others
so we might be set free from sin
Jesus laid aside His glory
so we might receive glory.
Jesus was welcomed to earth by shepherds,
but we will one day be welcomed
into heaven by angels.
