Good News of Great Joy



Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David.   Luke 2:11

Do you see that? It says 'for you'!

Christ came for you and for me

 
There was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon. This man was righteous and devout, looking forward to Israel’s consolation, and the Holy Spirit was on him.  It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he saw the Lord’s Messiah.  Guided by the Spirit, he entered the temple complex. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform for Him what was customary under the law,  Simeon took Him up in his arms, praised God, and said:
  
Now, Master,
You can dismiss Your slave in peace,
as You promised. 
 For my eyes have seen Your salvation. 
 You have prepared it
in the presence of all peoples—
a light for revelation to the Gentiles
and glory to Your people Israel.

Luke 2:25-32


This is Good News of GREAT JOY!!!

 That is the reason for the season, my friend!
