But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12
Have you heard the good news? The news of Jesus our Messiah was born to be your Lord and Savior. This is the message the shepherds were being told that night out in the fields. Notice God didn’t rush to tell the Kings and Queens , he told the Shepherds first. Why? Because Jesus came to free the captives, to make the one who was last now be first, to give hope to the hopeless. Jesus came here for the humble and not the proud.
So where is this great King the shepherds wondered? This mighty King is a baby lying in a manger. The angel told them your sign will be a baby wrapped in cloths. Do you think Kings will bow down to a child? Only those who listed to God, who don’t have a hardened heart. The Shepherds who listened to the word of God found their salvation in a Manger that night. Do you know where your salvation comes from, look for the baby in the manger in Jesus Name Amen
