Returning with changed hearts

After the Shepherds had encountered the Messiah, their lives were changed forever. Even the way they viewed their 'work' and 'normal lives' changed. Luke records how they returned to their everyday lives:

"The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen." - Luke 2:20

As people around the world start to return to the 'normal' routines of school and work, may we return with the joy of Christ in our hearts. This is not to say that there will be difficulties ahead of us, but rather that our attitudes have been challenged by the birth of Jesus.

May God bless you as you settle into the new year. May your routine be filled with the joy and peace of Jesus.

Living in Grace
