Today I am going to talk about some angels who are part of the Christmas story. Angels are God’s messengers. Sometimes angels told bad news. But in our Bible Reading, the angels brought the best news of all — that Jesus had been born!
While the shepherds were watching their sheep at night, an angel came and stood before them. The shepherds were afraid, but the angel said (verses 10b-11), “Don’t be afraid. I have some very good news for you. It will make all the people very happy. Today your Savior was born in David’s town. He is Christ the Lord.”
Then a large group of angels joined the first angel. Together they praised God and said, “Praise God in heaven, and on earth let there be peace to the people that please God” (verse 14). Wow! I wish I could have seen the angels and heard them praising God!
After the angels left, the shepherds went right away to Bethlehem to see baby Jesus. They wanted to share the news about Jesus with others. Who can you tell about Jesus today?
