Message Notes [December 16, 2018]

Tis the Season to Be Jolly?

Luke 2:8-14

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep.

Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory

surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he

said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.

The Savior-yes, the Messiah, the Lord-has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of

cloth, lying in a manger.” Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others-the armies

of heaven-praising God and saying, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to

those with whom God is pleased.”
