The Message of the Shepherds

An angel brings new of Christs birth to 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)

IN THE ABOVE Scripture, the shepherds weren’t satisfied merely to be told about the Savior’s birth. They wanted to experience Him for themselves. Like the shepherds—don’t just hear about Jesus, arise and seek Him yourself. Search for Him until you stand in His Presence, and then when you have found Him, tell others about your discovery.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of Your Son, and the message of love that He brought to the world.
