Luke 2: 10-12 ” But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’ “

On that dark night the heavens were suddenly split apart by the biggest light show ever seen.  The entire heavenly host sang in unison, praising God and the birth of His Son Jesus.  All this pomp and ceremony to the most unlikely group of people…the shepherds.  God chose the social outcasts…those considered unclean by the Priests due to their routine handling of dead animals to be the very first to know about the birth of Jesus.  Yes, the Lord chose very common people to tell this wonderful news to…people like you and me.
