Today's Word, 3 Dec

Luke 21: 11-16

11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.


Friends, Jesus became poor so that we may be rich.

He was born in a manger, a dirty place, a poor place for us to be rich.

The manger can also represents sin, sin is dirty and Jesus showed us the day he was born that he surely took our iniquities.

Jesus is God, came in a human form, he could’ve chosen to be born in a palace.

He showed us that he came to serve us, not the other way around, he humble himself to become poor, even unto death.


When the shepherds received the prophecy from the angels that baby Jesus is born, they quickly went to look for him, to see for themselves.

When we receive a prophecy from God, we must not sit on the prophecy, let’s go and make it happen.

When God says you’ll find a job, go apply for that job or a promotion, work even harder at work.

I’m not saying be God and fulfil your prophecy, that will be a disaster, but give God a hand and He’ll lift you up.

We all know that faith without works it’s nothing.


When Jesus was born, a group of Angels came down just to praise God.

Let’s praise God when we are in good times or bad times.

Let’s praise God for every good thing He do in our lives.

He gives us peace and favour.

Let’s pray that His peace and favour to rest in us all the time.
