“Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger. 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, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:8-14)
Can you imagine being there on that day? Here these shepherds were minding their own business, when all of a sudden these beautiful angels appeared to them and spoke these words to them, and to us: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:8-14)
God’s heart for us is peace and goodwill. God desires our hearts to be full of goodwill, and full of peace. God is not into bringing torment to us. He gave us a Savior, Jesus Christ! God, the Father, loves us so much that while we were still lost and in our sins, Jesus came and set us free! Jesus did not come to hurt us or knock us down. He came to lift us up, and to empower us to do great things! Jesus said that He came to seek and to save those that were lost.
So during these last few weeks leading up to Christmas, make a decision not to get caught up with all the stuff of this world. Get caught up in in Jesus, let His love and goodness get all over you. See how much He loves you, by hearing these words that the angels spoke to the shepherds on that day so many years ago: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Enjoy Him, because He wants to enjoy you!
Heavenly Father, This Christmas season, help me not get caught up in the caos of society, help me get caught up with You Lord “My Father”. I am going to enjoy You, and thank You for all You have done for me. You gift of love and salvation is the greatest gift I could ever receive. Thank you for my friends and family.Continue to me with Your Spirit and use my life to share God’s peace with the world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
