“And the shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.” (Luke 2:20 NAB)
Angels. What would you do if suddenly in their presence?? You will be, someday, suddenly. The good news has already been told, there is nothing more to say. Multitudes upon multitudes have heard of Christ’s birth, all because of Christmas. That’s a wonderful thing. Understand that most are not believers. Christmas, a season when God’s Spirit brings to mind an amazing expression of love, the birth of Jesus, God’s gift of life. This living love story is for “everyone who believes in Him,” and is proclaimed every year. And not just for one day. How many will respond to “so great a love” this year?
I know there are plenty of ways Satan has muddied this occasion, but not the worship of Believers. Neither false gods of antiquity nor today’s hypnotic commercialism can spoil joyful hearts. We are celebrating because our Savior was born. Merry Christmas.
