An Extra Ordinary Visit (Luke 2:8-20)

Sometimes it hurts to find ourselves on the outside. We feel rejected or looked-over or very, very ordinary. But when God began his great work in our world by sending his son, Jesus, he first appeared to some lowly shepherds out in a field. Far from coming to the “important” people first, God displayed his glory to those people at the bottom of the social ladder. This shows us how God’s salvation is for everyone – from the greatest to the least. No matter who you are, Jesus Christ came to love and serve you, and God shows us our value by entrusting his message of salvation to ordinary people like us.
