The stillness returned to the night, but the excitement had not. The shepherds were told Who they would find and how they would find Him. Then as now, God tells us where He is. Sadly, for many the “directions” are lost in the diversions and pursuits of the world. As Christians, we are called to show the unsaved the way to God. As you pray, ask God to reveal to you how you can lead others to Him.

This post is part of a series of reflections that take us through the Advent season. They are intended to help us set our minds on the true meaning of Christmas. Manning Brown, director of Regular Baptist Chaplaincy, compiled these reflections for his church while he was stationed in Germany.
