I want to look at one word of the angels announcement to the shepherds. That word is "all". God was sending the message of good tidings and great joy... which was the message of salvation to "all".
When God says "all", He means "all". He didn't exclude anyone. Jesus came to save "all" people. That includes every man, woman, boy and girl. It includes the red, yellow, black and white. It includes the Jews, the Greeks, the Asian, the African, the American, every nationality, kindred and tongue. It includes the tribes of people in the remotest jungle. It includes monarchs, kings, queens, presidents, emperors and dictators. It includes the Buddhist, the Hindu, the Muslim, the atheist, the satanist, and any who worship false gods. It includes the prostitute, the incarcerated, the drug dealers, the murderer, the rapist, the pedophiles, the human trafficker. All also includes the rich and famous, the poor and unknown. It includes the college educated and the high school drop out. It also includes the CEO of a large corporation and the little child who is starting kindergarten. It also includes the porn addict, the drug addict, the alcoholic, the wife beater, the adulterer, the stripper, the homosexual, and everyone who is involved in any immoral act.
There is not one person, world-wide, past, present or future that Jesus did not come into the world to save. There is no one that He does not love. There is no one who is beyond His saving grace. He so loved "the world". The world includes anyone and everyone. He came to "seek and to save that which was lost"-- that includes "all" of us, because we "all" were lost.
He came to save you. Have you let Him? Have you had that message of good news and great joy applied to your life? The message of Christmas is a simple one-- God loved us and gave His Son for us. A young virgin gave birth to the Son of God in a stable. Receiving this Savor is simple too-- believe, ask and receive (believe on Him, ask Him to forgive your sins and receive Him into your life as your Lord).
Have a great day. Jesus Christ came to save "all" people-- no exclusions.
