An angel is a messenger of God. This angel’s message to the shepherds was ‘do not be afraid’ and that Jesus is ‘good news… for all people’ (v.10). Once they had found the baby in the manger as the angel had described, ‘they spread the word concerning what had been told them’ (v.17). You too have been entrusted with this amazing message about Jesus and are called to faithfully ‘spread the word’.
Question: What message are you spreading on behalf of Jesus?
Prayer: Lord, help me to not be afraid. Give me courage to share your good news so others might experience the joy of knowing you.
