"GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST // PEACE ON EARTH // GOODWILL TOWARD MEN"
Now, lets flip that around for a second.
Friends and Family, did you know that God’s will for all mankind is not only good, it is perfect in light of the Gospel. That means that as we make decisions based upon the truths of the Bible, we are actually living out God’s Perfect Will here on Earth.
Now, how can we have Peace on this earth if everything seems incredibly dark and difficult? Well, another aspect of God’s Perfect Will, is that no matter what we go through, He will be with us. His presence not only confirmed what the Shepherds had heard, His presence confirms that He is with us until the end of the age. This introduces a peace that is sometimes beyond our understanding, yet clearly helps us when doubt, insecurities, and obstacles surface above our faith.
If God’s Will is not only perfect when everything is imperfect. If His Peace ushers in His Presence. What should our natural response be? None other than an outpouring of Praise that begins with “Glory to God in the Highest”.
Friends, we get to celebrate the humble arrival of a Royal Savior. How can our holiday posture communicate a message of hope in the midst of instability? How can our countenance show that His presence is normal to us? How can our words preach a message that brings value to the broken and the lost?
In the same power and humility that Jesus was sent into this world, so to you, have been sent out to preach the message that brings many sons and daughters to glory.
He is with you, He came for you, He wants to use you.
May this Christmas be filled with His Presence, and may you proclaim the glorious news of the greatest gift ever presented to us.
