The Message of the Shepherds

An angel share the Good News with shepherds in the fields

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”—Luke 2:15 (NIV)

The shepherds wanted to witness the miracle of the Savior’s birth. They wanted to experience Jesus for themselves. This Scripture encourages you to be like the shepherds—search for Him until you stand firmly in His Presence.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank You for the everlasting love and light that Your son brought to the world.
