Read: Luke 2:8-20
Did you ever notice this: That the shepherds twice stood in the presence of God that night the angel appeared unto them?
The first time was when the glory of God shone around them. Then they had great fear. They were terrified at God’s presence.
The second time was when they entered the stable and saw “the Babe lying in a manger.” That Babe was also God. But then they had no fear. Then they had only great joy.
It’s clear: In Jesus we can enter the presence of God and not be afraid, but instead rejoice. Jesus is the way to the Father.
This is why we pray “in Jesus’ name.” This is why we worship Jesus Christ and adore Him! This is why rejoice so much over His birth!
