Good News of Great Joy

Christmas is supposed to be a season of joyful anticipation. Unfortunately for many, itʼs a time of stressful expectations. Gift shopping, holiday parties, gingerbread houses, tree ornaments, house decorations, the perfect egg nog...Itʼs all just a reminder of what you feel throughout the rest of the year: Youʼll never measure up. On the night Jesus was born, an angel appeared to a group of shepherds who probably felt they werenʼt measuring up either. They were ordinary people, but they had an extraordinary encounter that changed their lives. The angel shared with them “good news” - that their Savior had been born. God with us! The same good news is available to each of us this Christmas. No matter who you are or what youʼve done, your Savior is here - God with you!
