Want to Hear Some Good News?

Looks like this guy could use some good news right about now.
Luke 2:8-10 (New American Standard Bible)
8 In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.
10 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;
We all could use some good news right about now. When we listen to the news, all we hear is how bad the economy is, corruption in politics, murder of a child in Florida possibly by her mother, O.J. going to jail....finally, and professional athletes on the wrong side of the law...again. But, when we read this passage the Angel says "I bring you good news of great joy for all people." What was this good news, you ask? It was the coming of Jesus Christ. It was Good News then and it is Good News now. People need to hear it so we need to share it. Have you shared the God News with anyone yet this year? If we heard about a great Christmas sale we would share it, so why not tell people about the greatest free gift in the history of the world: Salvation through Jesus Christ. Free for us but cost Him His life. What are you waiting for? You and I have 13 shopping days before Christmas. That means we have 13 days to share the Good News of the Coming of Christ with people. Make up your mind to tell someone before Christmas comes and goes. People are Dying to hear some good news.
