Message by Pastor Mark.
Shepherds were not on the top rung of the social ladder in Jesus’ Day. In fact, they were pretty much at the bottom of the heap. So, why does God choose to announce the birth of His Son to them ahead of all others? Could it be that in the Birth of Jesus, God was redefining our understanding of what’s important and who’s included on His royal guest list? Jesus later will say, “The first will be last and the last first.”
