“Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger” (Luke 2:8-14 ).
- What content of the Angel’s proclamation makes the tidings “good”?
- A Babe
- How does this content relate to our creeds, what we believe?
- Does Great Joy come as just a gift to be received or is it a result of the gift giver receiving us?
- If the Joy of the Lord is your strength, what does Great Joy look like in your life?
