Widely Known


The shepherds didn’t
stay in their fields

when they heard
the news

but went to find
the Baby

and tell others
what they knew.


“And this One shall be peace.” Micah 5:5

“So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass., which the Lord has made known to us.’ “. Luke 2:15

“And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.”
Luke 2:16

“Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child.” Luke 2:17

They placed a sign
above Your head


how blessed I am
to know You as

my Lord and Savior
Bringer of Good News.


You establish who You are.

Good News


To faithful shepherds
tending their flocks
the angel did

telling them of
the Good News
sweet music to
their ears.

A laid down life is told good news.

“Then the Angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’ So it was, when the Angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” Luke 2:10,11,15 NKJV

A Day Of Good News

“And when these lepers came to the outskirts of the camp, they went into one tent and ate and drank, and carried from it silver and gold and clothing, and went and hid them; then they came back and entered another tent, and carried some from there also, and went and hid it.” 2 Kings 7:8

“Then they said to one another, ‘We are not doing what is right.  This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent.” 2 Kings 7:9

The famished people within the besieged city were about to find out that God had dealt with the enemy.

Oh Lord, we desire to share Your Good News with those who are being trapped by the enemy today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Know This

There is something Satan
doesn’t want you to know
that you are much loved
and sought after, so
he keeps you separated
and locked away
but Jesus has come –
He’s going to save you today!


“Now the Lord said to Ahijah, ‘Here is the wife of Jeroboam, coming to ask you something about her son, for he is sick.  Thus and thus you shall say to her, for it will be, when she comes in, that she will pretend to be another woman.‘”  1 Kings 14:5

“And so it was, when Ahijah heard the sound of her footsteps as she came through the door, he said, ‘Come in, wife of Jeroboam.  Why do you pretend to be another person?  For I have been sent to you with bad news.'”  1 Kings 14:6

No matter who we may pretend to be, Jesus knows the real us.

Thank You, Lord, for meeting us right where we are with the Good news of grace and salvation.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Good News

There’s no use pretending –
You see me as I am

filthy, sin ridden
still You did not stay Your hand

but reached out to me
in my deep and desperate need

knowing I was going to die
instead You died for me.
