Dear friends - have you ever 
Wondered - why did God choose humble
Shepherds  - to be the first to see His baby Son
Lying in a manger - on that bleak night - many years 
Ago ? - and - why would they accept Him - as
The Christ child - without question - then 
Tell others - all that they had seen

And heard - and come 
To know ?

I believe it was because - God
Had chosen shepherds - who would care
For lambs - that He had purposed - as a sacrifice
To  cleanse His  people of  their sins - and to proclaim
The Good News of  the One who was to  come -
And - when the time had reached its fulness
He  sent His  Perfect lamb - who would
Die for all mankind - who was - and
Is - His own beloved
Son .

His Son - Immanuel - God
With us - who would live to please
His Father - and who would grow in favour 
With both God - and also man - and yet - He lived
Among His people - incognito -  in humility
And wisdom - as God's One and 
Only - Perfect - sinless
Lamb .

Born of the tribe of Judah 
In the lineage of David - a shepherd 
Boy - who acknowledged God as his own
Shepherd - and - who would himself become a 
Mighty warrior - and a king - who would protect his
Sheep from bears and lions - and one day 
Would free his people - and destroy the
Great Goliath - in the power of God
With just a pebble - and 
A sling .

But - the One born in a
Stable - though of the line of David -
Was the Creator of the Universe - before all
Time began - and He came into this world - which
He created - to be the chosen Sacrifice - and
The Messiah - promised to His people -
The One - who  was - and is - 
And  is  to  come 
Again . 

Yes - the One - who will 
Return in Majesty and Glory - and at His
Name - every knee will bow - and acknowledge
That  He is the  Sovereign LORD - then - He will destroy
The powers of Darkness - and the minions of satan 
And restore His Glorious Kingdom - as it is
In Heaven - by His awesome power
And  His  Living 
Word .

So - dear  friends -  let us be 
As those first shepherds - and in deep 
Humility and reverence - acknowledge Jesus
As our  Saviour  and  our LORD - and  be willing to
Tell others - of His loving grace and mercy 
And spread the joy of  Christmas - to
The hearts of those weighed
Down and broken - in 
This  fallen 
World . 


Dear friends .. my prayer for all who read
these words is .. that you will come to know
The Saving Grace of the One born in a lowly
manger 2000 years ago .. but ..

He is no longer a helpless child .. but He is
The King of kings .. and the LORD of lords .. 
and one day soon  He is coming back for His
Church .. His glorious Bride ..

I pray that all who do not know Him as their
Saviour .. will  give  their lives  to  Him  this 
Christmas time .. and will truly know the 
Joy that only God can give .

Many Blessings to you all 
And a very Happy Christmas
