When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.

– Luke 2:15-16 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

After the angel announced the coming of the Christ and a host of angels sang, there was the normal night sky. The shepherds could have just gone back to their business of watching sheep, but they were did something more profound: “Let’s go to Bethlehem…”. Many Christians have had a spiritual experience, but have they then gone to see what the Lord is doing in their generation? We have made the revealing of the Christ the end point, instead of the beginning of a journey. Now that you know that Christ is alive, what is God doing in your generation? Are you willing to hurry off to find it?
