With the shepherds the angel reveals what about “good news”?

G- Gabriel

Why is it significant for Gabriel to tell them who he is?
What do you think is meant by, “I stand in the presence of God”?
What are the most important parts of Gabriel’s role?

E- Eternal welfare 
Read Luke 15:10.
What is the cause of the angel’s rejoicing? From this alone, what is revealed about the connection between angels and human beings?

L- Love 
Read Hebrews 1: 6.
What is the role of the angels as God’s son enters the human world?

DIGGING DEEPER:
