Pondering the Prepared ones:Shepherds
The shepherds were faithfully keeping watch over their flocks by night - Sheep are high maintenance creatures - they need perpetual care! That alone tells us something about these men! They were going about their ordinary mundane day to day business - when suddenly in an unforgettable life changing moment the night sky burst into light with first one angel and then a whole HOST of angels singing! That is one scene I want to see re-runs of when I get to heaven!!!!
Somehow their very occupation had helped to PREPARE them for this unusual occurrence - because they ACTED on what the angel told them - and found HIM and when they did they WORSHIPED! Whew! It's an event packed with learning and meditation!
It did not stop there for we read:
Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child.
They became fearless witnesses!
Think of it - they saw and worshipped a babe in a manger - we have known and fellowshipped with HIM as our SAVIOR and Lord and know HIM as our REDEEMER - personally! Have you "made widely known" that which you have seen and heard and experienced?
