Advent 2017 week 4.

On this Christmas Eve, I offer a song about the shepherds. The Good News was not brought to government officials, rich people, or anyone in power. It was brought to simple, humble folks who in faith, believed what they heard. May we be as the shepherds, not only believing the tidings of Christ’s birth, but truly taking them to heart and living each day for God’s glory. I wish you a blessed Christmas celebration and a joy-full New Year made possible by the Spirit within you!

Luke 2:8-20 (KJV)

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Did They Pray? (Shepherd Song) – Lyrics

1. The shepherds heard the good news first.
Why do you think that could be?
Late at night with the moon for light,
Watching over their sheep,
Did they pray? (4x)

2. The angel came, and so afraid,
The shepherds wondered why.
But Christ the Lord, this day is born,
The Savior of mankind.
Did they pray? (4x)

3. When they heard the joyous word,
They believed what it said.
And making haste to Christ’s birthplace,
They found His manger bed.
Did they pray? (4x)

4. Now we have known and heard and shown
The glory of our God.
So with that sweet humility,
Let us take the path the shepherds trod.
Let us pray. (8x)
