Read Luke 2:10, 16-20. When we rent a fantastic movie, we can’t wait to recommend it. We’ll sit through it again because we want to experience it with those we love. The angel encourages the shepherds with the most glowing review ever: “Good news. Great joy. Tell everyone!” Not the Savior is coming or someday he’ll grow up to be the Savior, but the Savior is here.
Good news for all people. No matter our circumstances. No matter our bad choices. No matter how lonely, forgotten or discouraged, the Savior is here because of God’s amazing love for all.
Reread Luke 2:19-20. What will you treasure up in your heart today either because of this study or from What God is doing for you? Thank God for his faithfulness and goodness. Ask him to give you the boldness to love others through your actions and words as you tell about the One, your Savior, who has come to rescue his creation.
