Inspired by . . . the Hope of His Coming Vol. 16
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them:
and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
(Luk 2:8-14 KJV)
Can you imagine the scene on the hills of Bethlehem this night? The host of heaven praising God in the company of a group of trembling shepherds.
Yet their fear and astonishment did not stop them from seeking the One the angels proclaimed!
And it came to pass,
as the angels were gone away from them into heaven,
the shepherds said one to another,
Let us now go even unto Bethlehem,
and see this thing which is come to pass,
which the Lord hath made known unto us.
(Luk 2:15 KJV)
God speaks to us in the language we best understand. To the wise men, who were Gentiles, He sent a star. To the shepherds, who were Jews, He sent angels. To the chief priests and elders, who were not prepared to receive any message from God, He spoke not a word to announce the birth of the Savior.
What is God speaking to your heart
Will you seek Him?
