There is Coming a Better Day

 

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”  Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.”

 

Matthew 1:18-23

 

the angel told Joseph to name Marys son “Jesus”

for He would save His people from their sin

not from the overlordship of corrupt teachers

that they could be saved by better known law

nor from the oppression of corrupt leaders

that they could be saved by better government

He would cleanse them from their stain

that they could be saved from death

He would do it, and could, because He is God

“His people” are Gods own chosen people

His name, Jesus, means “God will save”

God Himself would save His people, all people

God himself would do what man alone could not

He would be one with His people to save them

 

there has come a better day

Immanuel has come, God is with us

Jesus has come, God has saved us

His light has dawned on the lost and forlorn

 

Christ has come, all is well!

 

there will come a better day

Immanuel will come, God will join us

Jesus will come, God will renew us

His light will dawn on whom He calls His own

 

Christ will come, all is well!
