Dec. 15th, 2019 – Imagine you are one of the shepherds tending your flock at night on a dark hill outside of town when the sky is suddenly filled with light that you have to shield your eyes from its brilliance. A voice booming tells you of a the birth of someone that you have been awaiting for and your father’s, fathers have been praying for. A Savior. The night sky suddenly is filled with a chorus of some of the most beautiful singing you have ever heard and you fall to your knees with the emotion. But wait? He’s in a manager, this wonderful savior is not on a bed of silk linens in a temple somewhere? But wait? You’re a lowly shepherd. Shouldn’t you be telling this news to someone of more authority? Like a King? Thus begins a series of events that contradict everything the people of His time thought a savior should be, but actually confirm the scripture that shows who He was actually to be. A sacrifice. For all men. For all time. That cleanses our sins and provides us everlasting life. That is the Good News that brings Great Joy.
