I Bring you Good News of Great Joy


Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
[Luke 2:10]

The context of this verse is that of the message of the birth of Jesus Christ, conveyed by the angels. Two thing to see in this verse.. first that it was a Good News and second that it was of a Great Joy for All the people. We all can understand what is a good news and the joy that a good news brings to our life. We had been going to churches and listening similar message from our pastors and missionaries about the birth of Jesus every year, and that he came for us.. this is a common context taken up around the Christmas celebration. During all these have you felt any part of the Great Joy that accompanies this Good News. We human being usually feel happy and have joy when we understand the Good News. 

We know that the birth of Jesus was a Good News, but have ever understood the relevance of that Good News in our life, if we have not then we will not be able to experience the joy that comes with this news. We have to believe and understand the purpose of Christmas and then help others know the same, so that we all be part of the joy and enjoyment happening around Christmas.

When we have a baby born in our family, we are the most happy and joyful of all around us. This is an obvious reaction and the next thing we do is convey this message to every possible individual whom we know. have you ever realized if they also experience the same joy as you and your family does with the same news.. They will be happy that you called but probably not as happy as you or your family, but still you take the pain to call and inform everyone. With conveying the message you what them also to experience the same level of happiness.

We had been celebrating Christmas all these years, how many times have we gone out of our circle and conveyed this good news and the purpose of celebrating Christmas to them. We are stuck with our family and our circle of friends, but have you ever considered that there are possibly many others who would want to know this Good News... This good news that we celebrate is not just for you and me, but for all people, as the bible verse in context says. We would say that there are many others who can do this conveying of message apart from me, but let me tell you that, its a blessing for us if we take the burden to convey the Good News to others. Bible says following details about the person who brings Good News.

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation. [Isaiah 52:7]

“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”. [Romans 10:15]


Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, and lets take this opportunity to conveying this message to all those we can, and let them also experience the joy that we have received and enjoying. Help them understand the Good news and the great joy that received... great joy of salvation, great joy of relief from pain and sufferings, great joy of an eternal life, great joy to be happy every time and receive Gods blessing.... Make an effort that this great joy be experienced by everyone. This Christmas along with the gifts and sweets lets also spread this message of great joy to everyone.


Lord is Grace...
