You know the story. Today I’m inviting you to hear it again with fresh ears.

As you meditate on the Christmas Story, words from long ago that tell of Jesus’ birth, allow the Spirit to bring the story to life in your soul.

We will enter this passage prayerfully and expectantly using the Lectio Divina Scripture meditation method. As you allow the Spirit to lead, you may be surprised by what he has for you.

Once you’ve listened to this Scripture Experience podcast, then head over to the next episode and catch the interview with pastor and author Russ Ramsey. He helps us discover why shepherd were the chosen people the angel announced Jesus’ birth to and how the manger points to the cross.

Luke 2:7-11, NIV

And (Mary) gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
