Think of “good” (2896a) “news” (8052). Set aside your protests about the commercialization of Christmas. Forget your protests about it being based on the pagan Saturnalia. Forgive the person that gave you that horrid tie. Today is ultimately the celebration of the ultimate good news. It is the day we celebrate the incarnation. The day chosen may be arbitrary. The attitudes may need improvement. That does not take away from the announcement of the heavenly host.
(Luke 2:10 KJV) And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.You must admit that is “good” (2896a) “news” (8052). You must concede it comes from a “far” (distant NASB) (4801) “country” (land NASB) (776).
So get over your humbug and rejoice in the good news. Before the cross you needed the incarnation. And you got it.
