And the angel said to them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Isn’t it wonderful to see a little baby come into this cold, cruel world, and your heart goes out to him; there is sympathy that goes from you to him.
This is exactly the way Jesus entered the world. He could have entered as the King of Kings but He came in the form of a helpless little child so that you and I could accept Him into our hearts as Lord and Saviour.
The first time He came, He came in the weakest way possible, as a baby. The second time He comes, He’ll come in power and great glory!
Since I’ve been born, I’ve received some pretty fantastic gifts on Christmas morning, but the greatest gift I’ve ever received is Jesus Christ on a Sunday morning at Bristol Baptist Church in Bristol, Georgia!
