Lessons from the Promised Land
In Bethlehem, just a short walk from the Church of the Nativity, the place of Jesus’ birth, is a shallow cave. The opening of this cave is glassed in making it a small chapel.
Inside, we sat against the wall of the cave and sang a Christmas carol as we gazed out over the stony and hilly fields where the shepherds watched their flocks by night. I could picture them sitting around a small fire when suddenly, a host of heavenly angels appeared and the birth of Jesus was announced to them.
These shepherds tended the flocks of sheep that were used for the temple sacrifices. How prophetic it was, that Jesus, the Lamb of God was born in the place where the sacrificial lambs were raised.
This shows how specific God is as He works in our lives. He will work His beautiful will into your story. Keep your eyes on Him.
