My own personal savior

Luke 2:10-11 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today,  in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

” I bring you”  Wow, it always amazes me that The Good News of the bible is for me personally.  I bring you, Lisa, good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Insert your own name in there….I bring you, _________, good news…. Awesome huh?  Do you have problems?  Are you sad about anything?  Well,  God has some good news for you…… yes…..you.

Do a little exercise with me ….pretend that someone calls you and says “You just won a million bucks!! ”  Yes!  YOU LISA,  HAVE WON A MILLION BUCKS!!  WHOOPPEEEE!!!  Whoo hooo!!!!   You start thinking about all the ways your life is about to change!  Woweee!!!! All that debt…. PAID OFF!  Mortgage???  GONE!  Doesn’t that feel great???? Are you excited???  yes yes yes!!!

Well the good news of the Bible  is a million times better than a million bucks!  God himself calls it … good news that will cause great joy  The good news is ….the God of the universe in the form of a baby reached down and said “I love you”…..I love you to death.

Today,  in the town of David a Savior has been born to you….Lisa, Linda, Susan, Sam; he is the Messiah, the Lord.   He came to save us from our sin.  When I first heard this,  my human nature said “I don’t need saving,  thank you very much”  but I stopped defending myself , let down my guard and realized that God was just trying to love me.   I still have problems, mess up and get sad,  but I live in the presence of  and am carried by,  the Most High God.  The one who gave me the Good News is for me.
