Luke 2:11-14: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 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, good will toward men.
Meditation: Imagine that you were one of the shepherds in the field when an angel came into their presence. Then suddenly there was a large number of angels all praising God before your eyes. What a sight that must have been! To top it off, they finished their message to the shepherds by letting them know of the purpose of the babe’s arrival, “GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN.”
Prayer: Lord, as we celebrate your birth this Christmas we thank you for your great love for us. Amen.
