Luke 2:10 and 11

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news of great joy that will  be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

The angel speaks to the shepherds of GOOD news of GREAT joy that will be for ALL PEOPLE.  Today a SAVIOUR HAS BEEN BORN.  How this news has been polluted down through time.  “Good news of great joy” is now considered by many to be a system of do’s and don’ts, a religion of rules and regulations.  For some it is seen as restriction of their personal freedom.  For others it is a part of their own all-encompassing religious philosophy.  But, just as God does not change, so His Good News does not change.

Being in full-time ministry for 30+ years, I have seen it over and over again – adults, teens, children.  It is still good news of GREAT JOY when hearts are changed through repentence, and embrace their Savior.
