What the Angels have to say

Monday, December 18, 2017 0 Comments

Angels. Some people love them; some couldn't care less about them, yet the Bible is filled with references to them. We find in the Bible that angels, as God’s mighty messengers, play an important role in the Christmas story. They were sent by God to announce Christ’s birth.  

Imagine with me for a moment what the angels must have been thinking on that Christmas day… for, from the beginning of time, they watched in wonder at God's redemptive activity.

They watched God create man in His image…They watched man rebel against his Creator...They watched God promise to send a Savior to redeem mankind…They watched God graciously keep His people throughout the Old Testament as a testimony to His promise to bring forth a Savior from that people, Israel.

They then watched as the Father sent His Son, Jesus, born of a virgin. A multitude of them announced Christ’s birth and declared God’s glory …They watched Christ live the perfect life that man was supposed to live in obedience to God’s moral law…They watched in horror as Christ was beaten and hung on a cross to die for the sins of God’s people who failed to obey that moral law…They watched God raise Christ from the dead for the forgiveness of our sins.

So, here is what the angels have to say to us this Christmas:

“Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior!”

May you bow your knee and life to Christ as Your Lord and Savior this Christmas! May you know the peace that He brings as the Prince of Peace. This peace is defined as peace between you and God. This peace is firm and eternal assured for you by Christ’s death and resurrection.
