But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."
-- Luke 2:10-11
Wow! What amazing things could happen in our lives if we would continue to stand on these words today. What was the first thing the angel told the shepherd? "Do not be afraid"! This command is still valid today. We are charged to not be afraid. Fear is faith in reverse. Fear opens the door to our enemy.
