God decided He was going to bust right in to this every day normal scene. This wasn’t a Christmas pageant, brothers and sisters. This wasn’t something that happened in a church. 2000 years has caused us to think that this story is a drama that you act out. But what the Bible is recording actually happened outside of Jerusalem, and in fields where I’ve been and actually seen shepherds leading their sheep, whistling to them and giving the various commands. The Palestinian sheep will follow their shepherd. When you see that shepherd and go back in time 2000 years, you realize the real Lord God of heaven wants to invade the market place. He wants to invade our workplace. Your friends that think that Jesus has nothing to do with them are the ones He wants to appear to. That is what the Christmas story is about.
