Tidings of Great Joy

Luke 2: 11 – 14

8-12 There were sheepherders camping in the neighborhood. They had set night watches over their sheep. Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified. The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”

13-14 At once the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises:

Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.

Just a short post today, to wish you all a blessed Christmas. I pray that God’s hope, peace and joy will gird your hearts this Christmas and in the year to come. May His comforting arms enfold you and His deep joy lift you in your deepest yearnings.
