Fear Not

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a 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)

Fear often drives our decisions and actions. It's so natural that we are not even aware of it.

Fear not.

God's first words to us is "fear not".

Fear not, because God is Life. God is Light. God is Love.

God is good and willing. God is our Father as father should be. God the Almighty is in charge.

He is the good news. He is the source of joy. He is for all people. God is for you. He is with you.

God is our Savior, one who delivers from all our troubles, evil, sin, darkness and death.

He is the Christ, the Anointed One, the Chosen One to bring true peace to the universe. He is our hope.

He is the Lord, the King whose rule is perfect and benevolent, under whose authority we would be glad to submit.

Jesus is God who became a man and born of Mary on Christmas Day.
