Wednesday 30/10/19   

Evangelist Yetunde Ajala 

Luke 2 10 -1110 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord

Joy to the world, the saviour is born.

Joy to the world, salvation has come to us.

Joy to the world, we are redeemed, no longer slaves to sin.

Joy to the world, our advocate is exalted on high.

Indeed – Good news with every cause us to rejoice, because the birth of the saviour comes with a package for every believer. It brings:

  1. Spiritual and physical healing to the broken-hearted.
  2. Freedom to the captives – we are therefore no longer slaves to sin – Christ came to free us from a life that is dominated by sin and death, there is no condemnation any longer, because we belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed us from the power of sin that leads to death. (Romans 7v25–chp 8v10)
  3. Protection – God is protecting us by his power until we receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see. (1 Peter 1v5)
  4. Joy in trials – When we remain strong through trials, it shows our genuine faith and it brings much praise and glory and honour to our Christ Jesus. (1 Peter 1v7)
  5. Power to overcome – Christ overcame the world for us, therefore we should always rejoice in Him with faith that we will also overcome.
  6. Unconditional love – God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ (John 1 v 14).
  7. Sonship – If we are led by the Spirit of God, then we are children of God. And we receive God’s Spirit when he adopted us as his own children (Romans 8 v 14)
  8. Answered prayers – With faith, Christ will always supply all our needs according to His riches in glory, Christ also said if we ask anything in His name He will do it (we just need to ensure we do not ask amiss – we do not ask for self-pleasure) (John 14 v 12-14 & James 4 v3)
  9. Reward – A crown of glory awaits all faithful who have been good examples. (1 Peter 1 v 5)
  10. Heavenly Inheritance – a priceless inheritance that is kept in heaven for us, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay – it is the future glory we all are waiting for. (1 peter 1 v4)

Therefore, let all the faithful rejoice continually in the good news Jesus Christ has brought, Let the Lord be magnified at all times.
