Advent: Day 18

I'm still a day behind. I hope to catch up this afternoon.

So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, "Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us. Luke 2:15

Lucado's devotional talks about how it wasn't enough for the shepherds to see the angels. They wanted to lay their eyes on Jesus. The King. He recounts the story of Simeon who knew he would not die until he had seen the Messiah. Simeon continued in his quest for Jesus and once he had seen the child, he knew the promise had been fulfilled.

My prayer today is that I won't be satisfied with hints of Jesus, but will pursue Him in all His glory. Amen.
