but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. – Luke 2:10 (NLT)
The reason Jesus came was to bring good news to the world. What is this good news? It is that God wants to restore relationship between mankind and Himself. He wants peace between us and Him. God doesn’t want sin getting in the way of us having a relationship with Him.
This is why Jesus came, to remove the sin that separated mankind from truly knowing Him. The only way God could remove this sin was to have Jesus come as our perfect sacrifice. He came as a baby born of a women but His Father was God. By doing this, He could legally take our place on the cross and completely be made sin for us.
Thank God for Jesus! This is the good news of the Christmas story. Knowing this removes all fear and brings great joy to those who grasp an understanding of what Jesus did for them!
