11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:11 (NKJV)

Just wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a very happy and prosperous New Year! Remember the reason for the season is Jesus. Some of us forget that it’s the birth of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ that we celebrate. So did you remember to wish Jesus a happy birthday this morning? Happy Birthday Jesus!

From the Nelson Study Bible:

The city of David here refers to Bethlehem. In other passages, the phrase means Jerusalem (see 2 Sam. 5:7). Savior…Christ…Lord: These three titles together summarize the saving work of Jesus and His sovereign position. What God was called in 1:47, Savior, Jesus is called here. The word Christ means “Anointed,” referring to Jesus’ royal, messianic position. The word Lord was the title of a ruler. The meaning of the word is defined by Peter in Acts 2:30-36. Jesus is destined to sit and distribute salvations benefits from God’s side, ruling with the Father.
