But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. (Luke 2:10 NIV)
The shepherds watching their sheep at night were frightened when an angel appeared and the glory of the Lord shone all around them. But as the verse above declares, the angel brought good news about the birth of our Saviour and Lord who brings great joy to all people. It is a beautiful Christmas declaration from heaven — and a reminder to us as a Christian news publication that in our reporting we have a mandate to continue proclaiming the message of the angel: to declare through reporting from a Christian perspective that Jesus Christ is good news in every situation.
May you and your loved ones experience overflowing joy and hope and peace in Jesus this Christmas and into 2016.
