“For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord”  (Luke 2:11).


“Rejoice, rejoice this happy morn, A Savior unto us is born”  (LSB 391).


Christmas morning is a happy morning and welcomed eagerly by many. It is a day filled with promise. There is the promise of gifts to be opened, family gatherings to be held, special traditions to be enjoyed. It is a day filled with promise and with joy.


Throughout the Old Testament when God’s people heard the promises of a Savior, they did not know how long they had to wait for it to be fulfilled. Patriarchs, Judges, Kings, Prophets, and generations came and went. But Christmas did come after centuries of waiting. A child was conceived and born just as God had promised. These promises are remarkable because they came so long before the birth of Christ.


Christmas is a celebration of the fulfillment of God’s promises to His people. God does not forget His promises or His people. Generations of people had lived and died. But God did not forget His promise even though His people may have.


As we celebrate the birth of Christ today, God makes some promises to us too. He promises that through Jesus we are forgiven and that we will enter heaven. Those are not just words. If He didn’t forget the promise Isaiah declared: “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14); and if He didn’t forget the promise made through Micah: “But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting” (Micah 5:2); He won’t forget those He has made to us either. He loves us. He keeps His Word. Isn’t that amazing?


Christmas holds the promise of salvation nestled in strips of cloth lying in a manger and with that Gift holds the promise of forgiveness, life, and salvation.


“Let our gladness have no end, alleluia! For to earth did Christ descend, alleluia! Prophesied in days of old, alleluia! God has sent Him as foretold, alleluia!  On this day God gave us Christ, His Son, to save us; Christ, His Son, to save us”   (LSB 381).


A blessed and joyous Christmas from all of us to all of you!
