At Christmastime, we see man's version of angels everywhere. From cute little stitching designs, but beautiful tree toppers. Let's take a look at all of the Nativity Bible passages about angels.
Take a moment and read Matthew 1:20; Luke 1: 26-30;
and finally our focus passage for today Luke 2: 8-20.
Did you notice something? Every time an angel appeared...they were feared and had to re-assure that they were angels. In my mind's eye I picture angels as being mighty warriors with wings.
Now a bit about those shepherds. In those days, shepherd's were considered to be low-class people. Nothing great; nothing noticeable. Yet who did the angels go to first? Who were given the job to go and proclaim the news that Christ had been born? Jesus came to save the entire world...but the shepherds got to see Him first. And couldn't you just see those shepherds? It was dark..then all of a sudden the night sky is lit up by a bright light. Then a whole host of angels filled the sky. Wow, wouldn't that have been something to see?? Now that's a light show! I can't even find a photo to do it justice.
So I'll give you some fun instead.
