It’s Still Not His Last Name

May 17, 2018

There they were again.

There were those same words: Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

We heard those words from Luke 2:11 almost five months ago.

We zoomed by them, hurrying to the manger.

Christ is not Jesus’ last name.

Christ is the Greek translation of a Hebrew word Messiah.

Messiah is rich in meaning and perhaps best said in English along the lines of God’s Anointed  One, or God’s Special Leader, or even God’s Chosen Liberator.

Not just almost five months ago, but today, hear again the good news of the Gospel: Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

As a favorite song of our son’s says, “Give thanks with a grateful heart.”
