On the Judean hillside one night, an angel appeared to a group of ordinary shepherds. Following the angel’s delivery of “good news,” suddenly the sky lit up as an entire host of angels surrounded the small band of shepherds. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests (Luke 2:14, NIV1984). Why did God send a host of angels? Perhaps because such good news deserves a party. All of creation had waited for this event since time began—the miraculous birth of the Son of God. Heaven could not contain the joy. And you can be sure one fallen angel and his cohorts wanted to prevent this heavenly mission. Perhaps the heavenly host used their “angel muscles” to make certain God’s message would be delivered safely. After all, the entire world depended on it. Message delivered. Mission accomplished. The news spread. And the rest is history.
