The angels told the shepherds that they bring good news of great joy when they announced the birth of Jesus. This term "good news" is the same notion as "gospel". When we say we are to be "gospel" people, it means we are to be "good news" people. Christmas time reminds us that the birth of Jesus is good news to all people. But why?
Our passage in Isaiah 61:1-4 this week gives us four reasons why the coming of King Jesus is good news for everyone on the planet. I hope you'll join us this weekend as part of our Christmas celebration as we look at how the fact that Jesus has come to be with us is truly good news.
