Luke chapter 2 accounts that one night, shepherds were tending their sheep when the angel of the Lord appeared and told them to ‘Fear not’ because Jesus was born. He will bear their sins, He will be their friend, He will be a miracle worker, and because of Him they will be citizens of heaven. News unparalleled shook the world that night in 4 B.C. CNN and BBC could not have wanted a more coveted theme, and telecommunications could not flash a more arresting headline. That night was the divine shaping of history, God was fulfilling prophesy, and the old was being separated from the new. Jesus…It’s Christmas season and He’s our HOPE, Friend.
