The Angel Church

Last Sunday, Regan broke down the meaning and significance of the angel's words to the shepherds:

"Don't be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people."

Taking the verse from the end and working backwards, we looked at "...all the people" and saw a snapshot panoramic history of humanity and God's working out His plan for creation up to the birth of Jesus through the Genealogy of Matthew 1 and the backstory of the characters in Luke 2.

We then considered the "great joy" of the angel's words referring to the historical miracle that was the incarnation of God the Son via the virgin conception of the one who would be know as "Immanuel" (God with us): Jesus (for he will save his people from their sins) Christ (Messiah/Deliverer/anointed and appointed).

The "good news" is that all people, regardless of who they are, what they have or don't have, and the baggage they carry can be among those who have joy in Christ and so know God's peace, having become pleasing to Him. (Luke 2.14).

This story is the best Christmas story even over the rather fun tale of the jolly red cloaked grandfather character of Santa.

Jesus is better than Santa because he is an actual, living, historical miracle. We may sing "Santa Clause is Coming to Town!", but Jesus actually came to the world - God the Son made flesh.

What's more, Jesus is better than Santa because his gifts are about mercy not merit. God knows about that naughty and nice list and we would all make the former. We don't really deserve God's goodness, yet in Jesus Christ He gives such to us and enables us to be right with Him and with our fellow man.

Jesus is so much better than a once a year fictitiously present Santa because he is God with us always to the end!

Come along on Sunday at 11am - Jesus: God with us today?
