We left off yesterday with Luke 2:16; “And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger” (Luke 2:16). Let’s continue with verse 17; “And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child.”
Mary and Joseph had already been told by the angel what would take place, and it all happened as they were told. The message from the shepherds was just confirmation of what they already knew.
What is my point? Someone is waiting for you to tell them about Jesus and what He has done in your life. It may be that they have heard the gospel before, but need confirmation from someone that is a living proof of being directly impacted by the glory of Jesus – the gospel.
No one could stop these shepherds from sharing the good news. What they heard and saw, changed forever their lives and their future. When I watch some ‘professing Christians’ put many other priorities ahead of Jesus and never tell others what He has done for them, I wonder whether they really understand the glory of Christ’s coming to earth just for them?
I desire that the full impact of Jesus’ incarnation, life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension begin right now to transform how you see Him! The shepherds only saw His incarnation and were captured by its glory. You and I are on the other side of all that has taken place through Jesus’ life. This is unspeakable glory! Why would we not want to tell others the impact it has had on us?
