Luke 2:8-14

 

“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’” Luke 2:8-12 (NIV)

2.   GOD IS _____________ YOU.

 

“I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”

Hebrews 13:5 (NKJV)

 

3.   GOD IS ______________ YOU.

 

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace and goodwill toward men"  

Luke 2:13-14 (NIV)

 

"If your enemy is hungry give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.  In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you."  Proverbs 25:21-22 (NIV)

 

"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I will say, rejoice!  Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand."

Philippians 4:4-5 (NKJV)

 

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus"  

Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)

 

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God."

Romans 5:1 (NIV)

 

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 (NIV)

 

"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." 

Romans 5: 6-8 (NIV)
