Now that was a promise!

In Luke 2:9-14 some shepherds tended their flocks by night. All of a sudden an angel of the Lord appeared to them with a message from God. He told them they'd find their Savior, their promised Messiah, wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.

What? It seemed inconceivable that Israel's deliverer would come as a baby, and a poor one at that!

Yet the shepherds received the news and hastened to Bethlehem to see what the Lord had made known to them. And, having seen, they rushed to tell others--glorifying and praising God.

What if they hadn't believed the angel of the Lord? What if they hadn't gone to see for themselves? Or, having gone, what if they hadn't bothered to tell others?

What was your response when you heard the Good News about Jesus Christ?
