“Why the Shepherds”

Linda Spitalari

Luke 2:10-12

Every act of God in the Bible is with purpose and has meaning. It was not a random thing for the angel to share Christ's birth with the shepherds. The angel said, ..."l bring YOU (you shepherds) good news... (news) which shall be for ALL the people..."

Shepherds were watching over sheep. Some of those sheep would be sacrificed for the sins of the people, to cover over sin. Now, the angel says, a Savior has been born. This Savior, we come to understand, is the Lamb of God. The last lamb. His sacrifice doesn't temporarily cover over sins but washes them away forever. Glory to God in the highest!

Prayer: Thank you God for the birth of Christ. Thank you for the gift of salvation and eternal life through the birth, death, and resurrection of Christ Jesus. Amen.
