Luke 2:22-38 shows us the broad scope of God’s salvation, and details how it comes about. More than that, we see how we should long for it and be eager to tell others.
Coming to a clear understanding of God’s salvation should prompt us to greater obedience and service to our Savior.
When the angel appeared to the shepherds, he claimed that he had some good news of great joy. What was so good about this news? Was it good news then, but it has lost its relevance for today? We will see that the news is still just as good today as then, and it is still for all people, just like the angel said.
