Luke 2:15-20 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.
As I studied and pondered this text, the Holy Spirit revealed to me in studying that this text that is before us today is indeed a picture of "SALVATION" that has come to the world by "FAITH" alone.
Having seen the "SAVIOR" for themselves with their own eyes, the Shepherds hearts were filled with joy, excitement and hope for their future because this night was proof to them that the "Savior" of the world is sent by God to all mankind, including them.
O Night Divine! O Holy Night indeed!
Tears of joy is flowing as I attempt to place myself at the scene of this glorious occasion in my minds eyes.
Salvation came to the Shepherds. It's available to you too through Christ Jesus. Seek Him today through His Word.
GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST!!!
O Lord, indeed you are a "WONDER"!
THANK YOU LORD!
