THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Two little boys were overheard talking about Christmas.
Billy said, "NO! Tommy! The name of the King of Israel is 'BORN!'
Don't you know the song 'BORN, the King of Israel?' "
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Let us not forget: Salvation is OF God, and BY God.
It is given by grace for the BENEFIT of man.
God is the Eternal, Omnipotent Creator.
Man is at "enmity" (war) with God by SIN! (See Rom. 8:7-8)
When two nations war against one another, it is usually the one
who is about to lose that sends an ambassador seeking peace.
But mankind has no ambassador worthy of seeking God's peace.
Man certainly cannot win the war, but God is offering PEACE!
Christ the Lord is the ONE and ONLY ethereal
"Ambassador of Peace" from God to man.
He is the Emissary of God's "good will" toward mankind.
He brings in His Person Godís desire for all men to be saved.
He brings the desire of God to end the war of sin and call men
to surrender to the Almighty God.
When Jesus was born the angels sang:
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth PEACE,
GOOD WILL toward men."
PRAISE GOD for JESUS!
HE is the "reason for the season!"
