When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. - Luke 2:15–20
An ordinary night for the shepherds became one that changed their lives forever! 🙌🏻🙂
After they heard and witnessed the heavenly announcement of the Saviour’s birth, they took action. This news was too good to ignore so they hurried to the manger to see the baby.
They told many others of the wonderful news that a Saviour had been born. Their hearts were overjoyed because they had seen Him for themselves.
We know He was born, lived, died and rose again to save the lost. May we spread the word to someone this week - it can change their lives too ✝️.
“Christ has no hands but our hands to do His work today;
He has no feet but our feet to lead men in the way;
He has no tongue but our tongue to tell men how He died;
He has no help but our help to bring them to His side.”
