(Luke 2:15-20, Luke 1:1-4, Micah 5:2, Matthew 2:3-5, Luke 2:11, Luke 1:31-33, Matthew 1:18-21, Acts 3:12, I Thessalonians 4:16-18, Hebrews 11:1, Luke 1:38, Luke 16:29-31, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 8:29-30, II Kings 7:9, Matthew 13:44, I Thessalonians 4:11-12)

As with his entire Gospel, Luke wrote this morning’s passage to help us be certain that what we believe about Jesus Christ is true. In doing so, he also gives us an example of extraordinary faith in the lives of ordinary men – the shepherds chosen by God to be among the first to witness the incarnate Christ and believe in him.
