As shepherds watched their flocks one of God’s most spectacular suddenlies happened!
“That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them.” (Luke 2:8–9 NLT)
Heaven breaks in!
Ordinary lives encountering the extraordinary power and presence of God’s realm bursting into their existence, never to be the same again.
Such encounters are the invitation to go seek Jesus and discover the Doorway that made such heavenly invasion possible. God encounters will always point to Jesus. Mark that one down. It will keep your feet from diversions and deceptions.
“When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go … Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”” (Luke 2:15 NLT)
Through your work as an artist, author, influencer, born-again human being, you also act as a conduit for this wonderful world of God’s glory. Your work and words are a doorway that offer glimpses of something greater.
Like angels of old, we come with good tidings of great joy.
“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:20 KJV)
Your work goes beyond the paint daubs on the canvas. It surpasses the ink splats on the page. Your song is more than vibes in the ether.
You herald a new world, a new day, and a fresh hope with every expression of Christ in you!
