Great Joy

The angel who heralded the birth of Jesus that first Christmas morning reassured the watchful shepherds with these words: "Fear not: for, behold. I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."

Students of Christian Science know how perfectly the Saviour fulfilled his mission. He healed the sick, and comforted the multitudes who thronged him with the good tidings that they possessed a tender, loving Father who cared for even the smallest sparrow. And that even as a shepherd will leave the ninety and nine sheep and search for the one sheep that is lost, so in like manner the heavenly Father will not permit one of His children to perish.
