I Know I Couldn’t Ignore the Savior
Angels Point to Him
Scripture Reading: Luke 2:10-15
Key Verse: Luke 2:8-9
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
Can we ignore such a Savior? It has been many centuries since He came as the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Has our world stopped thinking about Him? Have we stopped celebrating Christmas? Oh, I know we have perverted Christmas; we have tried to make it about other things and other people. People are winning some battles over removing the nativity scene from public places, but Jesus just won’t be ignored! The battles will continue, and the sinful ones will keep hoping He will just go away. Other religions will keep professing their leader as the greatest, but Jesus just won’t be ignored! Rejected? Yes. Ignored? No!
One of the reasons the sinful world is fighting a losing battle in trying to ignore Jesus is the angels. Millions of angels keep pointing toward Jesus. The shepherds saw them and fell in fear before them. Joseph had one speak to him in a dream. Zechariah was confronted by an angel while he was at the altar worshiping and serving. Mary, Jesus’ mother, was influenced to write a song about His coming!
Angels serve God. Part of their eternal work is to point to and highlight God’s Son Jesus! They are good at their job! The cynic and the atheist are up against a company of heavenly hosts pointing toward the Savior of the world.
Father, I am so grateful I was pointed toward Jesus. I receive Him as my Savior. I will never ignore Him. May He be highlighted in my life. In Jesus Name I pray, amen.
