"That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guiding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them,. "Don't be afraid!' he said. 'I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior - yes, the Messiah, the Lord- has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!'" ~ Luke 2:8-11
God sent his angels to proclaim the birth of Jesus. He could have sent them to everyone: to the rich, the prominent, those the world deemed important, but instead, he sent them to lowly shepherds. The shepherds were afraid, of course, but they could not deny that the angels had been sent by God. "The radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them." They were surrounded by God's glory! Can you imagine? What a beautiful picture!
The angels were sent to share Jesus with the shepherds. Who are we supposed to share Jesus with this season? Have you proclaimed Jesus' first coming? Have you shared Jesus- His birth, His life, His resurrection- with everyone you encounter? Can they see Jesus in you?
Almighty God, I am so grateful that You sent Jesus for ALL people. The weak and strong, the poor and rich. ALL of us. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ Your son. Help me to share Jesus with everyone You put in my path. May they sense Your presence and see Jesus in my life. In the sweet name of Jesus I pray, amen.
Let others see Jesus in you this Christmas season!
For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. "
