JOY TO THE WORLD

 At the cry of The Babe, heaven broke into applause
Angels praising and singing and bowing
before God The Father for His Only Begotten Son was born on earth




In the countryside outside of Bethlehem there were shepherds with their sheep
The air was cold and their fingers were stiff from the night air
In the distance they could see the lights of the city
They would love to be able go there and visit with the people
They couldn't for they took care of sheep for sacrifice at the temple
They were considered to be unclean by the leader of the synagogue




Looking into the star studded heaven each one of them were humbled
by the beauty of the creations of God
An angel of the Lord stood before them and the glory of the Lord shone
 around them and they shook with fear
The angel told them not to be afraid  




 He brought good tiding of greatest joy for all mankind
 A Savior was born in the city of David--- He is Christ the Lord
All at once the air was filled with the sound of heaven's music
They looked at each other not believing what they were hearing
The beauty of the voices and the musical instruments
were magnificent sounds they had never heard before




The sky was full of angels each singing a new song
praising God in the Highest for the birth of His Son
The shepherd then left their flocks and hurried to Bethlehem
God lead them to the stable where His Baby
was with Mary, the Baby's mother,  and Joseph
Felling down before the Babe they worshiped Him
Glorifying God for allowing them to be witness to this blessed event
They returned to their flocks telling everyone along the way what they had
seen and heard-----that night changed their lives forever






God could have sent His angels to kings to announce the birth of His Son
He could have let Jesus be born in a castle
God in His love for us sent His angels to shepherds
to announce the birth of Jesus
They were unclean by Jewish law
He was born in a stable which also was considered unclean by Jewish law
You and I are unclean by the law
No more would lambs have to be sacrificed to make us clean and worthy of God's love




                                                          
The birth of His Son - JESUS is the most important
event in all of history

Why did God become a Man
Because He loves us and wants the clean and the unclean to be
able to come to Him----HE LOVES US

JESUE————EMMANUEL————GOD WITH US

From The Gospel of Luke  - Chapter 2
