Jesus is Born in Bethlehem
“So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.”Luke 2:6–10, NKJV
An Arrival with Startling Humility
A back room with the animals. A rough feeding trough fit for animals. Simple cloths to protect a new life. This is how the Savior of all, the King of Kings, made his grand entrance into the world.
The Angels and the Glory of the Lord
Shepherds are frightened as the glory of the Lord is bought to earth by angels. The Messiah has come! There is no need for fear.
Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.”
Dear Lord, Thank you for sending Jesus to us! Amen.
