born this day

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11 (ESV)

We all love to celebrate a birthday. Party food. Decorations. Gifts. Friends & family gathering together.

But this is no ordinary birthday. For “Christ” was born “unto you”. For you!

His purpose in life is to be a “saviour”. That is, literally someone who saves (Matthew 1:21).

So we’re really celebrating the gift He is to us.

And what a wonderful gift He is!

For through Him we can be reconciled to God (Ephesians 2:16).


prayer : thank you for the precious gift of Jesus

action : praise His name for He is the Christ
