“Behold, I proclaim to you great joy, which will be for all people. For a Savior is born to you today, who is Christ, the Lord, in the city of David.” Luke 2:10,11
Clearly you see in these Words that he is born to us. He doesn’t only say, “Christ is born”; but rather: “to you,” “to you, he is born.” And he doesn’t say, “I proclaim a great joy”; but, “to you”; “to you I proclaim a great joy.” This joy does not remain in Christ, but it will be to all people.
