13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”(Luke 2:13-14)
Christmas is being celebrated in different ways. Some decorate their home with trees and lights. Others choose to bake cookies and other goodies. Some attend services at a local church to hear the birth of Jesus read from the Holy Bible. Different cultures have traditions that they follow and pass to others.
The host of heaven at the birth of Jesus made an appearance and immediately chose to celebrate by giving God praise and worship. Their focus was on giving God glory that is due His holy name. Their proclamation was significant in exclaiming the good news of Jesus unto the whole world. It is important to notice that peace was extended to all on earth along with God’s favor.
