The Best News Ever!
Luke 2:8 “…there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night… 10the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.”
There was nothing extraordinary or uncommon about shepherds being out in the fields at night near Bethlehem. However, that night, God sent His messengers, the angels, to the shepherds to deliver a message of good news that brings great joy to all people. Remember that Jesus is God’s good news for all who accept Him.
