One of the phrases we hear often during Christmas is “unto us a Savior is born” which is from Luke 2:11. I wanted us to pause and ponder on that word Savior. To call someone a savior, it implies that we are in need. Those who are not in a dire situation do not need a savior. John’s Gospel (4:42) describes Jesus as the Savior of the world. This now includes all of humanity even those who seem self sufficient: the rich, the educated, the healthy, the youth, etc. The Gospel tells us that all of us are in need of a savior to save us from sin and death. This Christmas, let us pause and thank the Savior who was born to give us the ultimate hope and joy found only in Him. Merry Christmas!
