Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see–I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:8-11
Well, we have come to the end of this year’s Rossiter Devotionals. This one is for you, dear reader…to meditate on.
Imagine yourself as a shepherd, guided by angels…in the cold of winter…to a lowly manger. You stand enchanted and…more than a little bit frightened…by the stillness of the night…by the brilliance of the stars…by the scene unfolding before you…by the manger…by the sounds of a baby crying. You, embodiment of the most humble in the century in which you lived, will someday realize that you were present at the birth of a New Age.
Help us to be like the shepherds as we stand in wonder and awe…Tomorrow is Christmas Day. Hallelujah! LO
