There were those waiting in anticipation for the coming of Christ. They were waiting for the fulfillment of prophecies. They likely would have recognized the signs, but the Angels did not appear to scholars or theologians or keepers of the law – but to shepherds. They accepted the message of truth, just as it was, and accepted the call on their lives to spread the good news.
The message of the Good News is timeless – today, just as it was 2000 Christmases ago, and we are called to share the truth.
Think. Has God presented you with any signs lately? Is He leading you to do something new? Seeing His signs are often a result of looking for them. Pray today that you would be prepared for whatever He has in store for you. When you are ready, the signs will appear and lead you in the way you should go.
