Read: Matthew 1:21
The prophet Isaiah foretold it and the angels announced His birth triumphantly to all the shepherds in the fields, "Good Christian men rejoice with heart and soul and voice, now ye need not fear the grave. Peace! Peace! Jesus Christ was born to save." The very meaning of the name Jesus means Saved or Savior.
"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:17 (NIV)
"And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Acts 2:21 (NIV)
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (NIV)
This is what Christmas is all about, salvation, the savior, Jesus, King of Kings, Lord of Lords.
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" Philippians 4:4 (NIV)
Good Christian Men Rejoice! The original Latin title of this song is "In Dulci Jubilo" meaning "in sweet shouting".
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NIV)
As the Christmas season approaches, rejoice in the true meaning of Christmas. Keep Christ in Christmas. Rejoice in the gift of love from God, the sweet gift of salvation, our Lord and Savior, Jesus
"An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 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. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." Luke 2:9-11 (NIV)
