Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
2:8-20 Angels were heralds of the new-born Saviour, but they were only sent to some poor, humble, pious, industrious shepherds, who were in the business of their calling, keeping watch over their flock. We are not out of the way of Divine visits, when we are employed in an honest calling, and abide with God in it. Let God have the honour of this work; Glory to God in the highest. God’s good-will to men, manifested in sending the Messiah, redounds to his praise. Other works of God are for his glory, but the redemption of the world is for his glory in the highest. God’s goodwill in sending the Messiah, brought peace into this lower world. Peace is here put for all that good which flows to us from Christ’s taking our nature upon him. This is a faithful saying, attested by an innumerable company of angels, and well worthy of all acceptation, That the good-will of God toward men, is glory to God in the highest, and peace on the earth. The shepherds lost no time, but came with haste to the place. They were satisfied, and made known abroad concerning this child, that he was the Saviour, even Christ the Lord. Mary carefully observed and thought upon all these things, which were so suited to enliven her holy affections. We should be more delivered from errors in judgment and practice, did we more fully ponder these things in our hearts. It is still proclaimed in our ears that to us is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord. These should be glad tidings to all.
The word of God is so powerful and striking and sometimes it speaks for its self without anyone’s intervention. Most of times, we often neglect to give glory to God and we dwell in our own ways of our laurels and achievements.
We should always give Glory to God in whatever situations we are in and whether the situation is favorable or not favorable. We should give glory to God always to make it as our way of life
God is so kind and loving and we usually have the picture that God takes time to listen to our prayer. But, most of the times, he is always there listening to your prayers. Always remember, He is loving Father and just need your acceptance as savior of your life.
Most of times, we think that what we pray is best for us and we constantly crib for the same. However, our heavenly Father knows what is best for you and He shall give you the best at the right time.What he expects us from is to walk with Him and have faith and always giving Glory to him despite of our situations.
His love is boundless and never ending to his favorite ones.Trust in him and walk with him and give Glory to him with all your heart.Believe it or not, you will definitely see the change coming in your life
Lets say once again” Glory To GOD”
