The Greatest Gift
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 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. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." 13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
What love. What redemption and grace. That Jesus Christ, the darling of heaven, would come to earth to live as a man and give up His life to die a cruel and shameful death for His beloved.
He is Almighty God, Saviour, King of kings and Lord of lords.
He is the Lover of my soul.
