  • “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2: 10, 11). “Unto you” was the proclamation by an angel to three shepherd boys one night concerning the Savior of all mankind. “Unto you” is the good news of peace and good things of life from God graciously extended to all people. Heaven got so excited at such a wonderful announcement made on earth that a host of angels lit up the dark skies that night giving high praise to God. Needless to say, the shepherd boys also got excited by the heavenly encounter and announcement. They immediately made their way to Bethlehem to see first-hand that which the Lord had revealed. And there it was confirmed. They had heard and now they were seeing. It is true! Here is the child that is destined to change the world one person at a time by as many as will receive him, just as the angels had said! Having seen God’s all-inclusive salvation embodied in the babe, the shepherd boys began to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ far and wide. They became the world’s first evangelists to herald the heavenly heartbeat of God’s love and power to all people. Prophets and prophetesses had predicted, but now the person has come for all people to proclaim: The Savior is here for all! Whosoever will can receive the wonderful gift of God’s healing, wholesome, eternal life offered by God himself. Awesome! Absolutely awesome! What a wonderful gift that is provided for every person on the face of the earth! Proclaim his name! Let all people hear! The angels rejoice with the repentant! “Unto you”, unto all people, is God’s gift of salvation given in the person of Jesus Christ. Receive such a resplendent gift! Allow God’s love and life to be revealed every day, in every way, “unto you.”
