A SAVIOR IS BORN
By Elvin C. Myers
Scripture Reading: Luke 2: 11
The same day, probably night, when Christ was born, it was immediately made known. Shepherds who were tending their flocks in fields near Bethlehem were visited by an angel who announced Christ's birth. The angel was then joined by the hosts of heaven who gave praise and glory to the Lord. It does not say they sang.
When Christ was born, He bore a long list of identities. He was the Son of God, the supposed son of Joseph and Mary, the Heir to Israel's throne, the prophesied Prophet and Priest Old Testament writers mentioned, the One Who would redeem Israel and provide salvation for all who would believe on Him. No one else in the universe among angels or men could fill these roles.
Some people refuse to observe Christmas. They say no one knows when Christ was born and that it is a pagan celebration and totally materialistic. That may be true, but one should not lose sight of the fact that it is not the day that is observed by Christians but the purpose for the incarnation. When Christ was born, He took upon Himself the form of man and was made in the likeness of human flesh for the purpose of becoming the Savior oflost sinners. He will save whosoever will believe on Him for salvation. A Savior saves people. He \ does notoffer assistance and help people to be saved. He does everything that is required to save people. He saves people by paying the wages of sin for them by dying on the cross. With His precious shed blood the sinner's sins are washed away forever. "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now Justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him" (Romans 5:8-9). Our Savior was born; let us never cease to praise the Lord and give Him glory and thanks.
