Luke 2, 14

Angels tell of his birth.  Their song is heaven’s interpretation of his mission.

1.  “Glory to God in the highest.”  His work is cause for adoration by the angels.  The results of his work will be the same.  It illustrates afresh the love of God for man.

2.  “Peace on earth.”  The Prince of Peace is come to bring peace to men.  He comes to reconcile the world unto the Father and to give men peace among themselves.  Under the benign sway strife shall cease.

3.  “Goodwill toward men.”   It all expresses God’s good will toward men.  Giving his Son we know he will wills us good.  It takes just whatever form our need suggests.

A.  Revelation of the Father’s love

B.  Revelation of our sinfulness

C.  Then he died to redeem us, opening up the way to heaven.

Then let us join the angels in ascribing praises to him who has shown us such good will; and catch the same spirit.
