"All Who Heard Wondered..."
“All Who Heard Wondered…”
The angel had pronounced.
The heavenly hosts had sang.
Now, the shepherds decided to go and see.
In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.
And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
“This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”
When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.”
So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger.
When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child.
And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds.
They consulted with one another…you see this often in the Word. People consulted with each other. No one is an “island unto themselves” within the Body of Christ…especially leadership.
They went straight to Bethlehem.
They sought to see for themselves this thing which has happened…this thing the Lord made known to them.
They found Mary, Joseph and the baby.
They recounted what they had experienced.
All wondered at these things.
God is the “God of Wonders”.
Lose not the “wonder” of life.
