In Luke 2:1-20, specifically verses 18-19, we see the response of the people hearing the story of the shepherds: they were in wonder. Not the scratching your head type of wonder, but the sense that something magnificent has happened.
There are some specific things we can look at in this passage that still drive us to this sense of wonder today.
- God’s providence fulfilled prophecy (Luke 2:1-5).
- God’s Promised One entered the world plainly (Luke 2:6-7).
- God’s plan included the lowly (Luke 2:8-20).
- God’s provision of a Savior (Luke 2:11;14).
