Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:13-14
Imagine the scene of a sky filled with Angels glorifying the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus. This was just a little hint of Heaven here on Earth. As we should follow the actions of the Angels also and be glorifying our Lord Jesus daily.
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” Luke 2:15-16
The Shepherds didn’t hesitate to make the journey to see Jesus, they knew the importance of this event. How many of us hesitate to follow Gods calling? What great events from God are you missing by not obeying Gods Word?
When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.Luke 2:17-18
The Shepherds didn’t hide their love for Jesus, they didn’t keep his birth a secret in fear of being mocked. They rejoiced and spread the word that the Messiah has finally come. Jesus was prophesized throughout the Old Testament and that time has now been fulfilled.
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:19
Mary knew since the day she conceived from The Holy Spirit, that her son would be Jesus the Messiah. However as humans there is always doubts playing in our minds. But every miraculous event she witnessed, she store them in her heart.
Is Jesus the center of your heart? Are you glorifying the name of Jesus and giving thanks to God for this wonderful gift? Spread the Word and Glorify his holy name Amen
