For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. Luke 2:11
He comes to fight. He comes to rescue. He comes to save men and women. You need someone to go to war with you, he steps forward. No hesitations. No thinking twice. He puts his band on his head. He’s loaded for the battle. With his eyes ready to rumble, he seems like saying,”I’m coming to get you.”
He is not Sylvester Stallone, he is Jesus Christ.
Christmas day is God’s declaration of war. War against sin and death. He sends his Son, Messiah and Lord. May not be his last stand but this is his best stand. He is saying, “The buck stops here.” No more slavery but freedom. No more bondage but grace. Jesus will lead us towards the doors of our Alcatraz. He will not remain in his Pentagon directing our actions, he is with us in our daily and life conflicts. We are armed with his love, his presence and his faithfulness to hustle the bustle, to fight the good fight. Side by side, shoulder to shoulder he is with us.
We are victorious for he is. At the end, even at the start, we know we will. For he fights for us, he fights with us.
