Luke 2:8-14

In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 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: 11 to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”

I don’t know about the climate in Judea, so I’m not sure if Mary and Joseph were wrapped up so much they didn’t see the shepherds on the hills on their way to Bethlehem. I do know my amplified version of the scripture talks about how the shepherds were living out in the open. They shared the responsibilities of watching over the flock and it had to be a surprising sight for them to see the light and then to hear the voice of the angel.

‘Do not be afraid…I bring you good news of great joy to all people…a sign for you [by which you will recognize Him]: you will find him [after searching]…a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’

I think we still have fear come over us at things beyond our understanding. I think we still need to search for Him, then when we recognize Him, we are able to join the heavenly knighthood in praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth peace among men with whom He is well pleased. Amen
