Luke 2: 8-20 (NIVUK)

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields near by, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,


‘Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.’

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.’

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

“Love, love, love.

Love, love, love.

All you need is love.” (as the Beatles sang!)

What is love?

God is love.

All you need is God?



Do not be afraid because God has saved you from being without Him, He knows you by your name and you are His treasured child.

Laid in a manger, giving purpose to the outcast and significance to the bamboozled shepherds.


You will never sink beneath the waves because God is with you and you are His precious child.

Awake this morning on Christmas day, give an outpouring to the God of love and significantly celebrate the gift this day is all about.



All you need is Jesus.




Christ you were born so long ago,

Holy one showing that even a manger is useful to God.

Rejoicing angels then and now.

Isn’t that the cry of our hearts too?

Saviour of the world is with us.

Truth be told, You are amazing!

My heart sings and our voices shout:

Awesome is our God!

Say it again: Hallelujah! Awesome is our God this Saviour’s day!
