Advent Calendar Day 17 – Shepherds

Luke 2:8 In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.

It was an ordinary night, nothing special.  The shepherds were sitting around the fire, finishing up some conversations before turning in for the night.  Then all of a sudden, an angel, in full glory, stood before them.  A really dark night, is illuminated by the angel.  He tells them about a baby in a manger, the Messiah.  Some experts believe that their flocks were used for sacrifices at the temple in Jerusalem.  How fitting that angel would appear to them announcing the birth of Lamb of God.  They leave their lambs to go find the Lamb.

When they find Him, they tell Mary and Joseph all about the angels.  What a happy, glorious night!  The shepherds leave the couple and go tell all they can find about the baby.  Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus and to proclaim Him to all that we meet.  Make that your focus this Christmas, worship Jesus and tell others about Him!  Go tell it on the mountain and the valleys and plains and anywhere and everywhere, that Jesus has been born!
