Jesus Is the Real Reason

Yunhan Gwo · Luke 2:8-21

The first message from God was announced by His angel to a group of shepherds (Luke 2:10-11):

""Don't be afraid, for look, I proclaim to yougood news of great joy that will be for all thepeople: Today a Savior, who is Messiah theLord, was born for you in the city of David""

Jesus is the Savior, the Messiah, and the Lord for all—first to the Jews and then to all people of the world. God chose to announce this message tothe shepherds with symbolic meaning.

The intention was to make it clear that God has always chosen the humble and pure to bestow His blessing on. And more importantly, through Jesus the Good Shepherd, God has made it real for all people to be safely guarded and guided back into His household.

People everywhere are invited to embrace the Good News and be reconciled with God through Jesus, who is the real reason for the Christmas season—and for all eternity.
