 Our Savior is born! His birth brings joy to the World.  We are all sinners in need of a Savior.  God sent His Son, Jesus, to be born in a lowly manger.  Bethlehem was brimming with people but we are told in God’s Word that only a few paid attention and drew near to their Savior.  The shepherds tending their flocks in the fields were visited by angels announcing this wonderful event.  The shepherds left their flocks and sought Jesus, their Savior.  Wise men had traveled from far seeking their Savior as they followed the bright star in the heavens over the stable where Jesus was born.

The shepherds were not respected.  In fact, they could not even give witness in court.  They were not educated men.  They spent their time alone in the fields caring for their flocks.  Yet the wise men were well respected and educated.  I think they would have been welcomed anywhere and their words would have been respected.  This, to me, is a picture of how God loves all.  There are none denied the opportunity to approach their Savior.

As we approach Christmas and celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus, I encourage you to explore some of the names of Jesus.  These names tell us who Jesus is, why He came to walk among men and what that means to you and me thousands of years later.  The story is still fresh.  The story is as true today as it was when the shepherds and wise men sought to be near Jesus.

I hope you will leave a comment to share what you discover.  How does it bring you joy and encouragement?  Whether you are just beginning your journey to discover who this Savior is or you have walked with Him for years, my prayer is we will all find joy for this season of celebration.
