Watching sheep sleep

The world is out of step with God. We need a Savior who can rescue us, who can save us, and who can get us back on track.
A flock of sheep on a snowy hill.

“But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’”

– Luke 2:10-11

How often we forget the shepherds were working when the angels appeared to them! There they were in the middle of the night — providing what the sheep needed, protecting them from predators .. and doing it all with their presence .. most likely while the sheep slept! Then, “suddenly” Scripture says, “there appeared” and they “were afraid!” Oh, how the fear of the unknown and the surprises in our life can make us fearful rather than peaceful! This short Winning Walk devotional reminds just how important it is to do what the shepherds did — they recognized the Savior! May The Good Shepherd give you peace this Christmas, no matter your circumstances, and may you introduce many to the Savior this season.
