And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. -Luke 2:10-11
“Ages of time have now come and gone since that night in Bethlehem, but still today for all the world God sends this message again: Glad tidings of great joy, tidings of comfort and joy!” (from this song)
Christmas joy doesn’t depend on circumstances around us, but on Christ who is with us!
