Here are four things we can do with this message. First of all, we can receive it. We can receive the Christmas message. It says in Luke 2 that, "There were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid". Just imagine if you will the wonder of that evening near Bethlehem. When I've been there, I've looked out at where they say the pasture land is, and it's kind of like you look at it and you say, "Yeah, that's really something like that should have happened here". One moment, the skies were dark, and probably the moods of the shepherds were even darker. And the next moment, an angel was in their presence, an angel with an amazing message. And they were afraid, but they heard this message that the angel brought. "And the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'"
