Shepherd's Light In The NightWritten by Tessa
Sometimes wonderful things seem to happen at night, like the Northern Lights in Alaska or fireflies blinking haphazardly across the front lawn. For shepherd's the night presents no such wonders, because predators lurk in the shadows stalking sheep. So while others rest, shepherds are on guard. They're night watchmen, awake, aware,and alert. Guarding and protecting their sheep throughout the night is their primary focus. So it's interesting to me that God revealed to shepherd's the birth of Jesus, the Messiah, in Bethlehem one dark night. These regular shepherd guy's had a wonderous experience, but it wasn't the experience but the One who was spoken of that they focused their message on. It really wasn't their message either, it was God's. They shared it. The study that's being prepared is about the light in the night that compelled shepherds to seek to find the Messiah in Bethlehem and the message they carried to the lost sheep of Israel.
