Faith & Insight: What’s next?


Well, Thanksgiving Day is now over. So, what’s next? I think you surely know, but here’s a hint.

But the angel said to shepherds in the field, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that 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.” — Luke 2:10-11

Can you just imagine that scene? There we are as Judean shepherds keeping a night-watch over our flock. The darkness is quiet as we keep our eyes open and alert against human and animal prowlers of the night. Days are long, and the nights even longer. Even by taking shifts, it’s hard to stay awake. All of a sudden, there is an indescribable intense brightness all around us and soaking into our bones! We tremble in fear as an angel of the Lord instructs us to not be afraid!

Nearly 2,000 years later, there still are things and events that cause us to nearly faint in fear. But the coming of that same Savior into our world continues to be good news of great joy. He is here. He is now. He came to deliver us from our sins and struggles. He gave his life, rose from the grave and ascended into heaven to prepare an eternal home for those who receive him.

So, what’s next for you?
