Luke 2:8-10 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people."
Good tidings of great joy for all people! That includes you and me! The Good news was the birth of the Savior of the world. This news would cause great joy to come to all that allowed it into their lives. As you continue through this holiday, don't forget that the JOY of the Lord is your strength and the strength of the Lord is your JOY! This is YOUR time. Don't be afraid.
