Christmas Greetings from Ranger Bill

The birth of our Savior Jesus is recorded in the second chapter of the gospel of Luke. Luke tells us that, as Jesus was born in a stable in Bethlehem, angels came and shared the good news that the Savior of the world was born with shepherds who were out watch their flocks at night. The sight of the angels made the shepherds afraid. But angel said don't be afraid for they were bringing good news of a savior.
The word angel means "messenger." The angels were messengers sent from God to share the gospel good news. The shepherds responded by going quickly to find and worship the baby Jesus. But that wasn't all. Those humble, often disrespected, she herds then left Jesus to tell everyone in those parts about the Savior in Bethlehem. So the shepherds became angels to those around them, being messengers of God's gospel.
You can be an "messenger" angel to those around you today. You have heard the gospel of Jesus. You know far more about Jesus and His life, death, resurrection and the forgiveness it brings through faith. Go be a "messenger" angel this Christmas.

And from Ranger Bill, everyone in Knotty Pine, and also from me, Dave, have a Christ-centered joyous Christmas!!!
