"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!'"
Do we really get the significance of what took place in that humble stable? It was so significant that a great multitude of angels came celebrating, rejoicing and praising God. His plan had come to pass. He left His throne in eternity and arrived in this place called time, becoming human flesh, so that He could walk with us and show us how to live eternally. Jesus did not come to save the angels, look how they celebrated! He came to save us! How much more we have to celebrate than they!
Heavenly Father, our minds can't fully understand just how magnificent Your birth into humanity was. What an awesome plan to bring us back into the right relationship with You. You loved us that much, to give up the throne of eternity, to become one of us. Oh, Lord, open our hearts to the grandeur of this news so that we can celebrate even more than the angels did on that night. We pray in the name of Jesus who came to us as one of us that night, Amen.
