Luke 2:10-11 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today, in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
” I bring you” Wow, it always amazes me that The Good News of the bible is for me personally. I bring you, Lisa, good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Insert your own name in there….I bring you, _________, good news…. Awesome huh? Do you have problems? Are you sad about anything? Well, God has some good news for you…… yes…..you.
