The Christmas Dilemma: Shepherd & the Dilemma of Joy
We’re in Luke 2.8-20 today and we’re looking at a Shepherd and his dilemma of joy.
The shepherds were spending a normal night watching their flocks of sheep when the angel of the Lord appeared. They were terrified – but the angel quickly turned the initial reaction of fear to an announcement of joy. And not joy just for them – but for all peoples.
Other verses we covered today include 1 Corinthians 1.27-31 and John 10.10-11.
- God is not looking at you with a checklist. He’s looking at you like a Father who loves you and wants you to experience the fullness of joy.
- God chose the lowly to hear the message first. And He chose them to spread the message first.
- The message is for ‘all the people’. There’s no one that the Savior didn’t die for. Do you believe you’re part of that group?
