Passage: Luke 2:8~20

Key verse: 14

There were shepherds living out in the field. In that culture, they were insignificant people. Yet God’s glorious news reached them first. The angels appeared to them and told them about the good news that will cause great joy to all people. Angels said, “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

The Messiah has come into the world. It had been foretold again and again throughout human history. Now God has fulfilled his promise by sending his one and only son Jesus, the Messiah, into the world. Jesus is the good news that will cause great joy to all people. Because of Jesus, all mankind is saved from the power of sin and death. Those who believe in Jesus will be saved. Once sin entered through Adam, all mankind lived under the power of sin and death. We all roamed about in utter darkness. But coming of Jesus is a great news to all mankind. He became our true and only Savior. We have his life and light. We have eternal life in Jesus!

Thus, Jesus became the glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.

Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for coming into the world to save us from our sin and become peace on earth.

One Word: Glory to God! Peace on Earth!
