Merry Christmas!

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them.

“Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” (Luke 2:8-15 NLT)

Merry Christmas! Thanks be to God for the greatest gift we could ever receive—Immanuel, God with us!

If you’ve joined me in an online Bible study this year or been a visitor to my blog—I thank you! No matter what your plans may be, I pray you have a blessed Christmas!

I hope you’ll join me again as we start the New Year with a new online study of An Untroubled Heart by Micca Campbell.

In Christ,
Laura
