Read: Luke 2:8-20 (Shepherds)

Have you ever seen a VIP list?  VIP stands for “Very Important Person” and people on a VIP list typically get special treatment for a specific event.  For instance, a VIP at a music concert might get front row seats and a chance to go back stage to meet the star after the show.  Usually VIP’s are people of great influence or popularity.  When the Angels appeared in Luke 2, they treat a group of shepherds as VIP’s to the event of the birth of Jesus.  They are invited to go “backstage” to see Jesus in the manger and have the first chance to tell others all they have seen.  However, the shepherds were not people of great influence or popularity.  They were as “normal” as they come . . . yet God wants to use them in His plan.

Question of the Day: Like the shepherds we have been invited to be VIP’s who get to share who Jesus is with all around us.  Who can you share the truth about Jesus with this week?
