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.
Salvation of man is OF God and BY God.
But it is FOR mankind.
God is the eternal, omnipotent Creator.
We receive His offer of salvation only because of His GRACE.
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.
By sin and because of sin, mankind is naturally at war with God (Romans 8:7).
Man certainly cannot win the war, but God is offering PEACE!
When Christ was born into the world, His birth was announced and a
"..multitude of the heavenly host.." sang praises to God.
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.
The angels sang "Glory to God in the highest.." because God alone
receives the glory for man's salvation.
Join the angels today in song!
Praise God for His "peace" and "good will" offered to mankind!
Praise God for JESUS!
