Wording of Tract

 

Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge arrived on the morning of Saturday 2nd May 2015. Excited well-wishers had camped outside St. Mary’s Hospital for days. With them, we express best wishes to the happy parents, and assure them of our prayers.

The princess was born at a time when there was no shortage of news. A finely poised election campaign was on-going. A fight billed as the richest in history was to take place in Las Vegas that night. An earthquake had rocked Nepal. African migrants were still being pulled from the Mediterranean. These huge issues had dominated the media but they were relegated from the front pages of the Sunday newspapers by the first pictures of the new arrival. Tragedy and sensation had been eclipsed by good news!

 The Bible specialises in good news and some of it relates to a royal birth, the coming of Jesus Christ. There was neither town crier nor pageantry to welcome His arrival. It was low-key, attended by poverty rather than pomp; He was laid in a manger, a feeding box for cattle.

 The good news was conveyed to shepherds guarding their sheep at night. The sky blazed as an angel appeared with the “good tidings of great joy”; “unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (The Bible; Luke 2.11). This really was good news because more than anything, mankind needs a Saviour. The Queen referred to that in her 2011 Christmas Broadcast; “God sent into the world a unique person – neither a philosopher nor a general (important though they are) – but a Saviour, with the power to forgive”.

 Mention of a Saviour implies danger. People in an inferno, men on a shipwreck, trapped miners and terrified hostages all need to be saved. Their saviours are the personnel of the emergency services or the military, men with expertise for the rescue. As a Saviour, Christ sets people free from the spiritual danger of sin and He provides refuge from the punishment of sin; “the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world” (1 John 4.14). Is He your Saviour?

 The need for a Saviour is occasioned by SIN of which there is an immense volume in the world. At an extreme level there are brutal terrorists and violent criminals, but generally, sin is expressed in each of our lives by selfishness, lying, jealousy, hatred, blasphemy etc., violations of God’s commandments that are so offensive to Him. Selfhelp programmes are futile; we need a Saviour, someone to empower us to resist temptation and to rescue us from the deserved unending judgement of God. God has provided that Saviour.

 Christ has the credentials to save us because of Who He is, the eternal Son of God. He has the ability to save because of what He has done. He died as a sacrifice for our sins and thereafter rose from the dead. He is a Living Saviour. To receive salvation from the power and punishment of sin, the Bible tells us to repent and to believe on Him, for “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10.13).

 Will you do that? Just as the new princess is part of a royal family, so you would be part of God’s family, “born again” as a child of God.

 J.H.
