Luke 2:9 states...
"And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened."
These shepherds had never seen God's glory. They likely had not spent much time in school. They likely were the opposite of "city folk". They were ordinary shepherds who spent their time with sheep and living in the outdoors. Yet, they were an important instrument chosen by God to deliver His message to lots of people.
Why? Because being ordinary made them believable. They were able to speak the language of ordinary to ordinary people of an EXTRAORDINARY series of events they had witnessed.
God chose to include shepherds, ordinary shepherds. God is attracted to our ordinary. He does His best work with ordinary.
I consider myself ordinary as I trust many of you consider yourself ordinary as well. We have a very special opportunity to share what God has done for us that is EXTRAORDINARY!
God bless you.
