Good News for Christmas Eve

24 12 2010

Luke 2:15-20

When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child. All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds.

And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.

The Daily Path: “Let us go then to see this thing that has taken place.”

In this passage we hear how God has once again spoken to common men like you and me, inspiring them to witness His love and mercy. Then, when they have seen, they are again inspired to go out to share it among all they come in contact with.

Friends, we’ve been called to witness the miracle of God in our lives. Some of us have just had an inkling while others have opened their eyes fully to be truly transformed by the experience. Tonight, as we begin to come together as family and friends to celebrate the birth of the Savior, let us be like the shepherds that first holy night. Tonight we see the miracle of the Child who a benevolent and loving father sent to us. And now, filled with that grace we are called to go forth and live the miracle everyday of the year.

Thank you for all of your notes, prayers and support in 2010. You’ve made such a difference in my life. Truly, God has brought the miracle of you into my life.

I wish each of you a Blessed Christmas filled with His Peace!
