Our Savior brings news of great joy to all; invite him into your life and home
The angel said to the shepherds: “Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Please notice the words “to all the people.” The angel’s announcement goes out to all of us. No one is left out – however unworthy, unspiritual or unprepared one may feel. So whatever is going on with you right now in your life and relationships, the good or the bad; Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of Forgiveness, Love and Life has come for you.
My Christmas prayer and hope for you, on this my first Christmas in the Diocese of St. Cloud, is that you will invite our Savior into your lives and homes. He brings good news of great joy.
I pray for you daily and wish you a blessed and joy-filled Christmas.
