Message of the Day: Christ the Lord is Savior Not Just from Foreign Domination and Physical Hardship but from Sin and Death!
“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a savior, who is Christ the Lord!” (Luke 2:10-11, NKJV)
The first group of people who received the news from an angel that the Messiah had been born were the shepherds in the fields near Bethlehem. Fear was the common reaction to angelic appearances. Thus, encouragement was needed.
Many Jews were expecting for a political leader to deliver them from Roman rule and physical hardship. But the announcement concerns the Savior who would deliver from sin and death. Christ the Lord is the Messiah, “The Anointed One” sent by God to fulfill such mission. This title or designation originally reserved for God but later applied to the Messiah as well.
