::Devotional:: ‘Salvation Has Come For All To See’

December 22, 2010

I guess two things have really hit me about Christmas music on the radio this year.  For one thing, they started the day after Halloween on some stations which is way too early in my opinion. Ha!  Secondly, I realized that many stations who would avoid mentioning the name Jesus are broadcasting song after song about him 24 hours a day.  Under the guise of Christmas carols, many people are unaware of the depth of the messages within the lyrics they sing.  What’s really interesting to me is that many of these carols are sung worldwide in various nations and various tongues.  God has placed the message of salvation through Jesus Christ before the whole world for people to see.

Consider the words of Simeon in Luke 2.

Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you no dismiss your servant in peace.  For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.  Luke 2:29-32

A salvation prepared in the sight of all people.  A light for revelation to the Gentiles.  A light for the glory of God’s people Israel.

Think of all the people worldwide who, in some form or fashion, will celebrate Christmas this Saturday.  The message of the Gospel, the reconciliation of a sinful man to a holy God has been placed in the open for all to see.  Some will sing, “Joy to the word, the Lord has come.”  Others will turn up their iPods and hear “Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the newborn king.”

So many people will sing and celebrate a truth they have yet to see.  Let us pray that many eyes will be opened this Christmas to see the salvation that God has so boldly proclaimed and placed before them.

-Stay Rooted Col. 2:7-
