But the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news
that will cause great joy
for all the people.
Today in the town of David
a Savior has been born to you;
he is the Messiah, the Lord.
This will be a sign to you:
You will find a baby wrapped in cloths
and lying in a manger.”

A PORTION OF AN EMAIL FROM THE IMB PRESIDENT
….we celebrate the fact that Jesus became a man to live and dwell among us. He came with a purpose—a mission. What was that mission?
Why did Jesus come?
In Luke 4, we find Jesus reading about His mission from the prophet Isaiah and proclaiming His fulfillment of that prophecy. We learn that Jesus came:
- To preach the gospel to the poor.
- To heal the brokenhearted.
- To proclaim liberty to the captives.
- To give sight to the blind.
- To set free those who are oppressed.
- To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.
When is “the acceptable year of the Lord” or “the time of God’s favor”? Now! Second Corinthians 6:2 tells us, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
We are dedicated to continuing Jesus’ mission to bring healing, hope, and the message of the gospel to the world—and we are so proud to stand side by side with you in this work.
May God bless you as you celebrate the One who came to set us free!
Today, let’s focus on the reason Jesus came to earth. He came so people could be saved here on earth and be blessed with an eternity in Heaven. Let’s pray for all people to receive Jesus in their hearts. In addition, pray specifically for those you know of who need to make this earthly decision with a heavenly reward of living with Jesus forever.
Let’s also continue to pray for those who are cold today. May they find warmth, food, rest, and love in a home, church, or shelter.
