Heavenly Angels Abound

An angelic Christmas ornament
The angel said to him, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news.”—Luke 1:19 NIV

During Advent Angels seem to spring up everywhere: on Christmas cards and wrapping paper; in countless store windows and Nativity scenes. Take time this holiday season to turn back to the tremendous events of these celestial beings chronicled in Luke and Matthew. Listen carefully, the angels may have something to say to you this Christmas.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, open my ears and heart to the good news of Your angels of long ago… and the angels of today.
