Glory to Glory
Just imagine this for a moment ... what if one of the shepherds at the manger in Bethlehem was a young boy learning to tend sheep? What if he experienced that cold, lonely night so long ago that we have been told was invaded by an angel announcing the most improbable news? What if an immeasurable multitude of an angelic choir joined that angel singing God's praise in the most awesome display of heaven's glory? What if he went along with the other shepherds to find the baby and his family in the stable and witnessed the majesty of God's incarnation? What if he grew up like most shepherds of the day on the underside of life? What if the challenges of life caused him to stray a little? What if he wound up, a few short years later, in a Roman prison facing execution? And what if he met a carpenter facing a similar sentence? How might his story have turned out? Read Jacob's story and see how he experienced "glory to glory."
