And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear Not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2: 8-11
Could any gift be more personalized than to have it proclaimed by an angel as a gift to you? Yes, the angel spoke to the shepherds, but through the Gospel, my Savior speaks to me, a poor and miserable sinner. He speaks to you and all who believe. It is that gift to “you” that allows us to fear not and shout with joy over our “Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”
Merry Christmas to “you” all.
