In Day 2 of the 24-Day Challenge Bible study, we continue reading the book of Luke, learning about Jesus’ birth, the messengers God sent to spread the good news, and some of Jesus’ childhood. Here’s a recap to help you follow along.
An angel announced to shepherds in the fields of Bethlehem, “For to you is born this day a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” After seeing Jesus, they told others and praised God.
Reading further, we find out that Jesus was here not just for the Israelite people. A godly man named Simeon announced that in seeing Jesus, he had seen God’s salvation, “a light of revelation for the Gentiles.” So we learn that God had sent His Son to save people from every nation, including us. And at the end of Luke 2, we begin to get a glimpse of the savior we would come to know.
In reflection, as guided by the study, we can see how important it is to make the best of opportunities God gives us, trust that Jesus is Lord, and also be His messenger to tell others how to find Jesus.
