Thy Kingdom Has Come- Part IV (The Angels)

Shepherds and Angels

Read: Luke 2:13-14

The first evidence of Jesus’ royalty was the singing of the heavenly hosts. A multitude of angels heralded His coming with great rejoicing.

However, the great rejoicing does not end there after the announcement. In fact, it has only been the start. Those who belong to the kingdom have a great part in that heavenly rejoicing. In Luke 15:10, Jesus said, “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents.” We bear the task of sharing the love of Christ. How will they know if we will not tell them? That would be the greatest Christmas gift we can give anyone. Let us allow the “stone that has struck the image by its feet to grow into a mountain”. Let the mountain in reply echo the glorious strain, Gloria, In Excelsis Deo, “Christ is born today in our hearts”.
