I rejoice in the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. I marvel how it would have been if I could’ve witnessed it. If I was a Shepherd that night and to witness a host of Angels praising our Lord and telling us of His birth. My heart would be burning inside. The anxiety of being able to see my Lord for the first time would amaze my soul. I wouldn’t stop marveling at what the Angels told me. That God would have chosen me to witness this marvelous event. Then to have come to Bethlehem to find Joseph, Mary and Jesus lying in a manger. I would have fallen on my face to worship my Lord Jesus. Tears would overflow on the ground.
Oh how amazing was His birth. I can never be grateful enough that God on High would come down in the flesh to rescue us from sin. That He would come to spread His wondrous love to all men. That His saving grace would rescue a soul such as mine. A person so lost as me. That His love could enter my soul and take away all the pain and guilt. Jesus you are the reason I live each day. Every day is for You. May we always remember Jesus’s birth!
8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.
10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.
11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.”
16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.
