"And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.
And the angel said to them, 'Fear no, for behold I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.'" ESV
The announcement of the Savior's birth by the Angel of the Lord was a most exquisite, majestic, and glorious appearance we cannot begin to duplicate in our minds. But this awesome phenomenon was displayed for a few lowly shepherds tending their sheep on a hillside, on what seemed to be an ordinary night.
Heavenly Father, coming to earth and becoming one of us in such a strange way just shows us that You are the God who has no plan to take the world by storm. But You came in a humble way to live among people and reveal the Truth so that hearts would be so moved the Truth would spread throughout the whole world. What a glorious God You are to have this way of assuring that thousands of years later, we would still be marveling and sharing the Truth. We praise You and pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
