Text: Luke 2:8-23 – On this Third Sunday of Advent, Pastor Russ reminds us that God chose to announce the birth of his Son to lowly shepherds. Shepherds did not fall into the category of nobility or upper class citizens. Yet, God chose to reveal the arrival of the Saviour to these simple, hardworking people. They went to see the baby Jesus, and then proceeded to share the good news all throughout the region. This should not be a surprise us since all through Scripture, we see God using broken people to accomplish his purposes. If God can use simple shepherds to spread the good news of the Saviour, he can use you and me as well!
