Silent Night????

They said it was a silent might have been in the beginning.....but think about it.....There were shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Suddenly....a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying.
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on
whom his favor rests"
How could they not be somewhat terrified? It was something they had never seen nor heard.....and yet, the Bible goes on to say:
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
So they hurried off.....

and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who had heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
Have you found the Savior that the angels declared? If so, have you returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that you have seen and heard which were just as you have been told? Are you sharing this precious gift with others?
I truly believe that this is not the time to be silent.....but to declare the Glory of God....
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord
