“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”

Luke 2:11
In a very real way, we as Christians celebrate Christmas every day of the year. The air still crackles with the electricity sparked by that great starlight on the dark night of Jesus’s birth. But from the vantage point of exiles, we may think God seems distant and remote. We grow accustomed to assuming He is no longer concerned or involved with our everyday life. Yet truly, He is. 

Imagine that night some 2,000 years ago, when the heavens opened up and briefly touched earth with the anthem of the heavenly hosts. In the midst of that foretaste of heaven, notice how that incredible moment was brought to bear upon the hearts of the shepherds (and, yes, on us as well!). They were told not to fear. This good news would bring great joy—for unto you is born a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. The wait was over. The Savior had arrived, the One who would end our exile, lead us in paths of righteousness, and bring us into our heavenly promised land. 

Even now, we can sing “Glory to God in the highest” with the heavenly hosts.
