And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. 

And the angel said to them, Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:8-14, ESV)

I would have loved to be present both at Jesus’ birth and when the angels brought their proclamation to the shepherds. What incredible sights to see!

We may not physically have the opportunity to see angels all around us as the shepherds did, but we know they are here among us helping the Lord carry out His work on the earth.

Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!(Hebrews 13:2, NLT)
