A Daily Devotion for Weds., December 2

Luke 2: 8-19

verses 13-14: Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”

God sent the big fanfare news to the lowly shepherds. First the angel to let them know the facts, and then a “great company of the heavenly host”. Maybe he was making sure to convince them the news was meant for them. Shepherds were not powerful or influential, but God wanted them to know first. Sometimes I do feel as if God’s grace and power is better served when it lands on someone else and not me. I don’t always make the most of what I know to be true about God and his gifts. God has made so much of himself and his plan known to us, to me. His gift of scripture is like a fountain that has no end. Heavenly Father, you speak to me even when I do not listen. You have power to give, to share, and it never ends. You comfort me and give me peace. In this world I am not important, but I am important to you. Amen
