An Opportunity of Hope for All



“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 (KJV)


Merry Christmas!

Goodness, light, and joy—for everyone. That’s what I’m talking about. Isn’t that one of the most important messages of the season? Let’s look at the two groups of people who first learned of the divine birth:


Poor laborers, dirty, local men

Wise Men (How many were there?)

Rulers from the rich East—most likely an Arab or North African country. Brought three very expensive gifts native to that area.

The Significance of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh 

(taken from )

All three of these elements had great spiritual and physical meaning. Gold has been a symbol of wealth since ancient times. Frankincense and myrrh both emit fragrant aromas. They have been used in religious rituals since biblical times. Today we find the precious minerals in cosmetics, perfume…oh, and incense.

 My Conclusion

Jesus’ birth is important for every person. The blessed event brings hope to:

  • Celebrities
  • Homeless individuals
  • Politicians
  • Day laborers
  • Victims

There’s a song that illustrates this truth: “Do You Hear What I Hear?” In this video, the a cappella group, Pentatonix, joins their talents with the late, great Whitney Houston. Bear in mind there are no instruments. You would never guess it; the beatboxer is so skilled.

Do you believe He’s your savior, too?
