28. Glory to God in the highest – 30 days of thankful Scriptures

Yesterday, I unpacked and set up our family’s nativity set. As I set out the little lambs and the shepherds, assembling them around the manger scene, I had to wonder how they might have felt on that amazing night.

There they were, huddled on a chilly night on a Bethlehem hillside, keeping an eye on their sweet flocks. A brilliant star hovered overhead. Then the sky turned extra bright above them. An immense choir appeared and broke into song with perfect harmony.

“Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others – the armies of heaven – praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.’” (Luke 2:13-14, NLT)

That’s what happens in the Presence of God. Angels rejoice.

Maybe those First century Bethlehem shepherds got a little foretaste of Heaven.
