The shepherds were humble men, just doing their jobs when the angels met them and opened up what God was doing. They were not at some special worship service or religious activity but rather were doing what God had appointed for them. It was as they did God’s will that God met them. They were lifted into faith by God as they followed the direction of the angels and they were released to spread the word to the world around them.
