Christmas Day – December 25, 2016

Reading: Luke 2:1-14

“The angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you, who is Christ and Lord.’”

Teaching brings certain fears. However, rest assured that the shepherds in the fields of Bethlehem on that night feared more than you ever will. Step back and let Jesus do his good work in your students. Today, and perennially, rejoice that God came down to us, to raise us up to him. Merry Christmas!

What fear will Christ conquer this day?
