Shepherds are told about the birth of Jesus
As the shepherds were working - going about their lives they were told about the Lord's birth and the Lord showed them his heavenly host. - Not only did they see the angels but they also were surrounded by the radiance of the Lord's glory! Jesus is born!-They were brought good news and this good news was going to bring great joy to all people. Praise the Lord for the Birth of His Son! The armies of heaven praised God - and it wasn't a small host it was a "Vast" host. Can you image what it must have been like for those shepherds ? It says that these shepherds were staying in the fields that night- more is coming - they left there sheep to go see Jesus! Imagine guarding your sheep and then having a angel tell you the good news and then seeing the vast host of heavens armies and praising and telling you that Jesus was born that night and where to find him!
