When was the last time you were amazed? When was the last time you confronted something with such wonder that you stood and just marveled? There are two things that happen. First, you stop what you are doing and then admire what is wonderful. The night of Jesus’ birth, angels in heaven and humans on earth, stopped what they were doing and drew together in awe. And the angel said to them, “fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” The start of Jesus’ earthly life was marked with such wonder because this was the next step for Jesus, who was more than just a great teacher or a prophet. Jesus was the only person ever to live a sinless life. He was both fully human and fully God. God could have announced the birth of Jesus in a king’s palace, yet he sent his angles to shepherds.
