9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared in radiant splendor before them, lighting up the field with the blazing glory of God, and the shepherds were terrified! 10 But the angel reassured them, saying, “Don’t be afraid. For I have come to bring you good news, the most joyous news the world has ever heard! And it is for everyone everywhere! 11 For today in Bethlehem a rescuer was born for you. He is the Lord Yahweh, the Messiah.Luke 2:9-11 The Passion Version (TPT)
An angel appeared in radiant splendor to the shepherds. Announcing the joyous news a savior was born, Jesus the Messiah. Then the sky in heaven burst forth with a multitude of angels singing praise. “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men (Luke 2:14).” Good news for all, we praise the Lord for his blessing!
How do you share the Good News of Jesus?
Prayer: Our Father, we praise you for the good news of the birth of Your Son, our Messiah, our Savior. Like the beauty of the sky surrounds the sunflowers, let the beauty of Jesus’s birth surround us and touch our hearts. Lord, teach us to embrace Your love and peace and to share it with others. We worship and praise our Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen
Angels from the Realms of Glory Poem by, James Montgomery based on Luke 2:10
Angels, from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o’er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation’s story,
Now proclaim Messiah’s birth:
Come and worship, come and worship
Worship Christ, the newborn King…
Though an infant now we view him,
He shall fill his Father’s throne,
Gather all the nations to him;
Every knee shall then bow down:
