Luke 1:26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth
The Angel Gabriel is one busy Angel during this time. Only 2 angels are named by name in the whole Bible; Gabriel and Michael. He appears to Zechariah, Mary, and Joseph. All of his appearances deal with babies. What a privilege he had of announcing the birth of Jesus. It was and is good news, that Jesus was to be born.
Angels are not the cute little things with wings that we make them out to be. They are powerful creatures that cause fear when they make themselves known to people. Gabriel tells both Mary and Zechariah to fear not, because both scared. Angels have to tell people to “Fear not” almost every time they interact with people. Gabriel is powerful enough to shut Zechariah up for months after not believing his message.
Gabriel reminds us that the Christmas story is full of God news. Go out, like Gabriel, and proclaim to people. Share the Good News!
