What is our great need in the world today? Is it information? No, we’re drowning in a sea of information. If information were what we needed, God would have sent us an educator. Knowledge may double, but truth never will.
What is the need in our world today? Is it technology? No, we’re afraid of our technology today. If technology had been the need, God would have sent a scientist.
What is the need in our world? Is it money? No. Do you think your problems would be solved if you had more money? If money had been the need, God would have sent an economist.
Do you think our need is more leisure? Maybe God should have sent an entertainer.
No—our great need is salvation. And so God sent a Savior. And I’m amazed and blessed that He sent the message to humble shepherds: “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior ….” Yes, He is a Savior — “a Savior, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10-11).
