The Ender of Fear

Luke 2:8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10a And the angel said to them, “Fear not,

An angel appears to lowly shepherds and the glory of the Lord fills the sky.  Rightfully, sinful shepherds fear in the face of God’s glory, but the angel declares, “Fear not!”  Why don’t they have to fear?  Because Christ is born.  The king of God’s people is born and will enable sinful men and women to be in the presence of the glory of God and not be destroyed.

The Cause of Good News

Luke 2:10b “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

The good news of Jesus is that the savior of people’s sins, Christ (the Messiah), and the Lord and King of God’s people is born – a good news of great joy!

The Bringer of Peace

Luke 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Those who have faith in Jesus are those with whom God is well pleased.  For all of those who have that faith, then they will enjoy peace with God and have the ability to be at peace with others.
