“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NASB)

And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” Luke 2:9-14 (NASB)

Imagine the elation of worldly people if they were heavenly-minded. Joy comes to the world from this point of view.

  1. I love this statement, "Sit in the stillness and know that God exists". The breath of Psalm 46:10 Scriptures and the songs that make them sing. Good job girl. We are listening!
