Favorite Verses: Luke 2:11

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. 

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:8-11

No list of my favorite verses would be complete without my favorite verse from the Christmas story in Luke 2.  “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”  It might not be Christmas season on the calendar right now, but it can be Christmas in our hearts every day of the year and this verse tells us what it’s all about.

The baby in the manger is good to think about, but the reason for His coming was to save us from our sins.  Unto us was born “a Saviour.”  It has been said that we didn’t need a teacher, a physician, or a friend (though He is clearly all of those things).  We needed a Saviour.  And that is what He sent.

Every year in December, we celebrate the coming of this Saviour to Earth, but we shouldn’t confine our celebration to one day, one month, or even one season of the year.  We should celebrate the fact that we have a Saviour every day of every month of every year that we live.

I will be away from the computer for a couple of weeks.  Feel free to comment, and I will respond when I get back.  Thanks for reading and commenting and God bless!

One response to this post.

  1. I thank Jesus for being my Savior everyday. To renew in my own mind the import of his birth death and resurrection for me personally is a needed ritual to keep me on track.
