Learning from Shepherds & Wisemen

  1. God made specific announcements to both the shepherds and the wise men regarding the birth of Christ. God speaks to each of us in a way we can understand when he reveals himself to us. God's revelation is personal.
  2. Both obeyed God's summons. Angels invited the shepherds to "go and see." The star appeared to the wise men, and they knew it announced the birth of a king. Both groups responded to God's summon.
  3. Both discovered that God's word was true when they obeyed.
  4. Both worshiped.
