2. “Joyful, all you nations, rise.”

_______________________________________________

But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 1 Today in the town of David 2 a Saviour has been born to you;

3 he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Luke 2:10-11

1. GOD IS FAITHFUL – HE KEEPS HIS WORD

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old, from ancient times”

Micah 5:2

2. GOD IS GENEROUS – HE MEETS OUR NEED

“”You are to give him the name Jesus,

because he will save his people from their sins.”

Matthew 1:21

3. GOD IS SOVEREIGN – JESUS IS LORD

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.”

Philippians 2:9-11
