A spiritual time

Sunday's message by Pastor Sonya Bertram is called “A spiritual time”.

Why were the shepherds chosen by God? They were lowly, unknown and obscure. 

Yet, the angel of the Lord appeared to them, announced the birth of the Saviour, and they, responding in simple faith came to worship the baby, and went on their way telling the good news.

Yet this is more than a heart-warming account of what took place over 2000 years ago. It is an example for each of us today. 

Do we look at the birth of Christ as some tradition that is a tradition that we roll out every December, or do we sincerely accept the message and true purpose for Christ's coming to earth?

The shepherd’s lives were changed forever on that night. And unless the Christmas story changes our lives too we have missed its real meaning and purpose.

Let’s look at what we can learn from the shepherds.
