And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. Luke 2:13-15
It must have swept them off their imagination to see the multitude of host singing, worshiping and praising God in one beautiful symphony.
Imagine the beauty of our heavenly home.
We will be singing
We will be dancing
We will be rejoicing
Singing along with the host of heaven
Lifting our hands along with the twenty-four elders.
The Shepherds angelic visit was a unique privilege.
But more than ever we are grateful that Jesus is present with us and dwells in our hearts.
Today, remember our celebrations here are nothing compared to that which will be when the Bride goes home to the Groom.
Family Activity: Please pray for my dear friend and sister, Bettie Gilbert, who wrote alongside with me in this Advent Devotionals. She is a beautiful heart who had dedicated her life to serving God’s people. She struggles with her health. Please pray for strength and healing upon her life and the lives of many more sick among us.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the heavenly presence that announced your earthly arrival. I am grateful for the joy that surrounds your presence. Let your presence continually abide in my home in Jesus name.
