Some of you may be thinking by now, “Pastor, this doesn’t seem like much of a Christmas message.” Yet this is why we have Christmas, man’s sin and God’s plan. The child laid in a manger represents the greatest answer to the troubles we see around us. Our security shouldn’t be in a gun, it didn’t really help the ol’ West that much anyway. Our security isn’t in a man in the White House; they come and go on a regular basis.
Security is our sense of peace, of hope, the feeling that it will all work out. We don’t find that kind assurance in the world. We do find in Christ the plan for our needs and as Paul tells us the peace that passes all understanding. In Christ all the promises of God are yes. We find what we need. So where are you looking for your security? Any other place then Christ is a false hope, a shifting answer for an eternal problem. Christ is the answer for your security.
