Finding Christmas

The shepherds of the Advent story were startled by the angelic announcement of Messiah’s birth to them of all people. They knew the promise, but never could have imagined they would be sent to first find the Messiah. They were social outcasts and religious outsiders with no place or position from a human perspective. But in the middle of their personal plight and struggle, God broke through and revealed to them His plan and purpose. When they responded, going as instructed, they found the Messiah. They found Christmas. If we approach the Christmas season with open and obedient hearts, we too will find a fresh experience of this holy season. No matter the challenges of present circumstances, Christmas can be found. Tune your heart to His divine frequency and God will point the way to Jesus. You will find the same Christmas joy those shepherds found centuries ago.
