Every day we are influenced by a wide variety of messages that come our way in many forms.
Some are printed in our books, newspapers and magazines. Others are heard over the airwaves through radio and our many sound devices. We receive messages visually through posters, television, computer and film, and many personal messages through our contact with people.
Some inform, some entertain, and in our consumer driven world, we are bombarded with numerous messages that advertise products and experiences we must have! The most powerful are those that inspire.
Distinguishing the important from the clutter of the trivial is a challenge.
On that first Christmas an angel brought the most astounding message to the world by way of a small group of shepherds in a field near Bethlehem. “Do not be afraid, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the city of David a Saviour has been born to you online viagra no prescription.” (Luke 2:10)
The message was God’s declaration that His purposes were being fulfilled through the birth of the Saviour. God’s plan was being completed. This was the greatest news. It was a message of hope for all, and the greatest reason for mankind to experience real joy. This was God’s announcement of action!
Impacted like never before, the shepherds abandoned everything and made their way to the place of their greatest discovery. And having found the Saviour as promised, they returned ‘glorifying and praising God’ (Luke 2:20)
All over the world, daily, the message of our Saviour continues to inspire men and women to begin a journey that leads to their greatest discovery.
