Luke 2:15-20 15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”
16 So they came hurrying and found Mary and Joseph, and the Baby lying in a manger. 17 When they had seen Him, they made widely known the word which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it marveled at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
Having heard the birth announcement of Jesus by the angels, the "shepherds" said to each other "let us NOW go to Bethlehem and see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us."
The message of the "Gospel" is not only "good news," but is also great joy to all who would believe it.
Having seen Jesus for themselves, the shepherds knew without a doubt that the "Redeemer" of sinners had come into the world to save those that were and are still lost today.
The day of Jesus physical birth was indeed the day that "SALVATION" was offered to the world.
I can only hope and pray that this Christmas season you too would seek the "SAVIOR' for He alone is the only who can fulfill that empty void that you daily attempt to fill with the stuff of this world and day after find yourself still empty and needing another fill.
The Shepherds seek, found and testified of the Savior birth. Can or will you do the same this Christmas?
ONE THING OF ASSURETY IS THE FACT THAT THOSE WHO SEEK THE "SAVIOR" WILL FIND HIM AND TESTIFY OF HIM TO THE WORLD!
