The Joy of Christ's Birth

Scripture: Luke 2:10–11

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Luke 2:11 gives us the cause for rejoicing. It begins with the word "For" and introduces the answer to the unasked question, What makes the tidings of this baby's birth so different as to bring "mega joy" to the one who receives it? Why is that these tidings of great joy are to be given to all people?

What we discover is that the angel will direct the shepherds' attention to two distinguishing aspects of this Child's birth. When we personally embrace the news of this Child's birth, it brings the same great joy it did to the shepherds so many years ago.
