|Why do you suppose the heavenly hosts broke into praise at Jesus’ birth? Jesus’ arrival certainly was at the heart of the story. But God’s purposes for human beings had broken into the open in a whole new way, and the heavenly hosts could not contain themselves. It had to be celebrated! Pastor Allen Jackson teaches that Jesus came on the ultimate rescue mission, and at Christmas we are celebrating the unmatched generosity of God to offer up His Son to deliver us from a place from which we could not deliver ourselves.
