Luke 2: 8-14

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 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 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 heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”

A Thought

Glory to God in the highest. Let’s each take time today and every day to praise God for the peace of our Savior and for his favor that rests on each that has received forgiveness through this celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Our Prayer

Father thank you for your way that Jesus has made possible for all generations before and all to come to be in relationship with you. All good things come from you. Glory to your name. Thank you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
