Sharing with the Nations!

Key Scriptures: Luke 2:10-13 “And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased!””
Luke tells the story of Jesus’ birth and the announcement of an angel to the shepherds who lived and worked near Bethlehem. They were told not to be afraid but were invited to see for themselves the sign: a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger. Suddenly, the heavens were alive with a mighty angel chorus praising God and pronouncing God’s blessing of peace to those on earth! Shout the good news!
Faith’s confession: Lord, I believe the good news of Jesus Christ! I believe it is for all people of all nations. Use me to share that good news!
Psalm 46:10-11: “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
