Monthly Message (Dec. 2017) – The Big News

Christmas03The Big News

In December 1903, after many attempts, the Wright brothers were successful in getting their “flying machine” off the ground. Thrilled, they telegraphed this message to their sister Katherine: “We have actually flown 120 feet. Will be home for Christmas.” Katherine hurried to the editor of the local newspaper and showed him the message. He glanced at it and said, “How nice. The boys will be home for Christmas.” He totally missed the big news; man had flown! (Daily Bread, December 23, 1991) Just like the editor, so many miss the big news of Christmas and instead focus on less important things. Christmas is a wonderful time of year and brings with it so many enjoyable things but it doesn’t have to come at the expense of remembering the true meaning of Christmas.

Luke 2:9-14 tells of the biggest news that has ever been delivered, the Savior of the world was born.

And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

The Savior of the world being born is not just big news but it is the best news the world has ever been given. The importance of the birth of Jesus Christ can never be overstated; it is the biggest turning point the world has ever known. This year don’t miss the big news by focusing on things that are not nearly as important.
