The Fourth Day of Christmas
In the four Gospels of the Bible, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John the story and account of Jesus’ life and ministry on Earth are revealed. The central theme of each book is that Jesus Christ is the Savior of mankind, that He is the Healer, the Provider, the Teacher, the Comforter, the Friend that sticks closer than a brother, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the World, the Son of God and the Son of man, the Covenant Redeemer, the Bread of Life, the manna from Heaven, and in His name alone is Salvation. He died for our sins and was raised to life again on the Third day by the power of the Holy Spirit.
On this fourth day of our 12-days of Christmas Celebration consider the Good News that our Lord Jesus came to bring the good news of salvation, the good news of healing, the good news of victory over death, hell and the grave, the good news of hope and assurance that we will spend eternity together with Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit in Heaven, the good news that by His blood we have become heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ, the good news that by His blood we have been made holy and righteous before God, the good news that the devil is the defeated, God is exalted and Jesus is coming soon, the good news that the meek shall inherit the earth, the good news that the poor, the lonely and
the lost have an advocate, a defender, a Savior, the good news that the orphan is now adopted into the family of God, the good news that no weapon fashioned against us shall prosper, the good news that we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ who loves us, the good news that Jesus is alive from the dead and in Him we are made alive for ever, the good news that in Him we live and move and have our being, the good news that Jesus has sent the Holy Spirit to abide with us forever and in Him we have the power to overcome the world.
As you have opportunity, share the good news with someone today. Meditate on it in your own heart and praise God for His gracious and immeasurable love toward us.
