Last week we focused on the shepherds and the angels for good reason that we will see this morning. The familiarity of this Christmas story shouldn't prevent us from learning something new each time we look at it. The shepherds were scared out of their minds when the angel of the Lord appeared, but the angel told them something incredible: a Savior had been born. The angel even gave them a sign on how to find the One. Tha's the good news of Jesus Christ. This morning, we'll see how the shepherds went from frightened to fascinated.
Read Luke 2:11-20 to get a feel for the context as we take a final look this year at the Christmas story.
How did the shepherds respond? They heard the message from the angel of the Lord. "Today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." It was a message of hope, a message of peace, a message of salvation, a message of deliverance.
