December 16th – Luke 2:8-20

Luke 2: 8-20

The birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, was a once in a lifetime world changing event. So you’d think God would reveal the glorious happenings to kings, scholars, and the prominent religious leaders of the day. But instead, God announced His gift to the world first to the lowly, simple, and outcast. Shepherds were considered spiritually unclean. Yet temple shepherds tending the unblemished lambs to be sacrificed, were the first to hear the news. How fitting. Because Jesus is the Lamb of God, with no blemish in Him to be found. The Lamb who came for to save the hurt, poor, downtrodden, and outcasts. The ones the world throws away, Christ gladly wraps in His arms of love, and extends His unmerited, amazing grace. So this Christmas, and everyday of the year, I give thanks for the wonderfully good thing the Lord did for me, and every other sinner in the world.
