(Verse of the week)
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 of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to all on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2.10-14)
Gracious God of Light and Love, may your light and your love calm the fears that sometimes grip me like a dark night. This Christmas, let my heart be filled with the songs of angels and the simple faith of shepherds. Fill me with faith and love in the name of Jesus Christ, Immanuel, “God With Us”, Amen.
Blessings for the Christmas Season –Pastor TJ
