If you’re facing a frightening situation, knowing Jesus is with you makes all the difference.

In Luke 2, the shepherds’ ordinary night of watching the sheep took an unexpected turn when an angel of the Lord appeared before them, and the “glory of the Lord shone around them.” They were terrified, but the angel brought them good news: Jesus is here!

Many of us are familiar with this story, and as we approach Christmas, we thought you’d be encouraged by what Pastor Allen had to say about it. Watch the short video now:

This message is from the sermon, “My Friend Jesus,” which Pastor Allen delivered earlier this year. He talks about Jesus, what He did for us, and the help He offers us today. You can watch the full sermon here.

There may be fearsome things happening all around us, but no matter what happens, we don’t need to be afraid—Jesus is with us, and He said he’d never leave us nor forsake us. Thinking about this truth can bring us great comfort—especially at Christmastime!
