“Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.”
Let us now go even unto Bethlehem; those words uttered by the shepherds over two millennia ago still provide great advice to each person today.
Bethlehem is the foundation of all hope in the world. It is the only place where “peace and good will to men” can truly be found. Other leaders and politicians may make promises, but only the baby born in Bethlehem can deliver.
Not only does this birth promise a future peace, it also makes available a spiritual peace. Our age is one of turmoil and anguish caused by sin. The prince of peace offers eternal security to all who will accept it.
This Christmas season provides a reminder of the great opportunity available to everyone who will put his faith in that baby whose birth we celebrate on December 25. Jesus Christ is the answer to the problems of the world and those of each person living here!
Let us each turn our eyes toward Bethlehem, and even more importantly, to Jesus Christ and His free gift of salvation and peace!
