Good news of great joy for all people

Luke 2--10

The Verse of the Day for December 22, 2015 proclaims that “good news of great joy for all people” was first given to lowly shepherds, as revealed in Luke 2:8-11 in the Amplified Bible:

In the same region there were shepherds staying out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord flashed and 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 this day in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (the Messiah).

Verse 10 indicates that the angel brought “good news” to the shepherds and ultimately to the entire world. The day that the Savior was born was, indeed, “A Good News Day,” poetically expressed in this way:

Good News Day

This is the day the LORD has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

It’s a good new day
no blues day
new shoes
no way to lose
What a good new day

It’s a great day
I can’t wait day
lift your voice
let’s rejoice
Good God, a good news day

It’s a payday
goin my way day
no nay–all yea
what you say
Such a good news day

It’s a live it up day
overflowin cup day
It’s a bright and bubbly
doubly lovely
Show-nuff good news day

As we celebrate the birth of the Savior, who is Christ the Lord (the Messiah) and as 2015 concludes while 2016 begins to unfold, may every day be a “Good News Day.”
