HELLO FRIENDS: 01.09.14 – Unto You is Born… Salvation

Hello Friends,

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
A handful of weeks ago I began looking at the phrase “UNTO YOU IS BORN.” Here is part four…Unto You Is Born…SALVATION.

Beyond the reach of human accomplishment and frenzied pursuits, lies the gift that can only be obtained in humility and surrender:  the benevolent offer of salvation purchased by the shedding of the righteous blood of our Savior Jesus.

Our conventional means cannot produce the promise of eternal life despite our best efforts. The righteous and devout man named Simeon knew what so many others would in time discover as he held the Christ child and praised God by saying, “For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people.”

Unto us the gift of salvation has been given. Praise God!

Friends, may your eyes likewise see the Savior!


Pastor John
