On the night of Jesus’s birth, we have the glory of the Lord shining all around some quiet shepherds who are keeping watch and guard over their sheep through the night. The most significant angel of all, the one known as “the angel of the Lord”, preaches this message to the shepherds: “Fear not! I bring you the gospel (good news) of great joy which will be for all the people. Today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord…” Then, along with this evangelist angel who brings the joyous gospel of Jesus, is “a great company of heavenly beings” (Luke 2:13), which can be literally translated “the army of heaven”. This host of angels, this army of heaven, joins the angel of the Lord in proclaiming the gospel of great joy, and then they join in both composing and then singing the very first Christmas carol of all time: “Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth, goodwill to men with whom He is pleased.”
These heavenly messages ring forth across the years and come to us today. They touch and enliven and comfort our hearts, and bring salvation to us. Consider this message…
