13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
There have been times in my life where I prayed to God I’d see a miracle in the sky to know that He was listening and that he cared about me.
The thought of this miraculous sight gives me great hope!
To have been one of those shepherds would have been such an incredible honor. That too gives me great satisfaction in knowing God bestows honor on all different kinds of people.
The two major points:
One: All of heaven rejoices in the birth of Christ & the shepherds only see a portion of the “great” company of angels praising God.
Two: People can be part of God’s family through Jesus, be close to God & experience peace & joy.
That too gives me great hope.
