GOD’S PROMISE – JESUS CHRIST – Worshipped by Shepherds

Prophetic Scripture Subject Fulfilled
Let the nomads of the desert bow before him; And his enemies lick the dust. (Psalm 72:9) worshipped by shepherds And in the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields, and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. And the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”… And it came about when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” (Luke 2:8-15)

The shepherds visited Jesus but did not bring gifts. The visit of the shepherds was supposed to demonstrate how Jesus came for everybody, not just the rich, and also to amplify the message that Jesus himself was a shepherd and that we were his flock.

Shepherds visit Jesus

Luke 2:8-20

Jesus’ first worshipers were lowly shepherds–again defying Jewish expectations for their Messiah. But just as God once made from a lowly shepherd Israel’s most noble king David, so again did He prove with His son that only He knows perfection.

Only God knows good–so doesn’t it make sense that He’d be the only one to know perfect? We prove we don’t know good every time we look at someone and see a sinner or an idiot or a jerk or an annoyance or a prostitute or a porn star or a crooked cop while what He sees is good enough for salvation at greatest expense.

Further, since His will is “good, pleasing, and perfect,”1 perhaps only God knows what His will is. Yet He hears our prayers and He tells us whoever asks, receives.2

Response : Lord, give us eyes that see you, ears that hear you, hands that feel you, noses that smell you, and fingers that touch you. Thank you, dear Friend.

When worshipping the Lord, bring something to Him–even if it’s only all of you. That’s what the shepherds did, and He loved it.

  2. He gave Himself . . . may all God’s blood-bought, adopted children know the REALITY of His abiding presence and be always ready to hear and obey His leading.

    We serve an amazing God who never leaves us.
