Good Tidings of Great Joy!

Text: Luke 2:8 - 20

Intro: Why did God choose the lowly shepherd to proclaim the wonderful news? There is only one announcement of Christ’s birth recorded in the Scriptures, only one invitation from God to anyone to come visit Mary and Joseph and the infant Jesus. And that one invitation goes to a bunch of uneducated, smelly, low-class, social and religious outcasts, a bunch of shepherds.

I. Who Are The Messengers?
A. Isa. 6:1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;”
B. Angels means messenger
C. Shepherds – Ordinary People
D. Busy People
E. Ill. The young salesman was disappointed about losing a big sale, and as he talked with his sales manager he lamented, "I guess it just proves you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink." The manager replied, "Son, take my advice: your job is not to make him drink. Your job is to make him thirsty." So it is with evangelism. Our lives should be so filled with Christ that they create a thirst for the Gospel.
F. Eye Witnesses

II. What Is Good Tidings?
A. The Gospel – Good News
Brings Great Joy
B. Witness – Testimony

III. What Was The Result?
Obedience – v.15 Let us go!!!!!
Salvation – v. 16 They came to Christ with haste!!!!
Worship – v. 17 They told others!!!!
Praise – v. 20 They praised God!!!!

Conclusion: What will you do with the message you heard this morning? Will you be like the shepherds. Obey, Receive the Lord, Tell Others, Worship, and Praise the Lord!
