A man was in London one night for a meeting. He rushed through the streets, turned a corner, and then stopped still. Dozens of angels hovered above Regent Street, their giant shimmering wings stretching across the traffic. Made of thousands of pulsing lights, it was the most amazing Christmas display he had ever seen. Some of the angels had their arms raised, as if they too were gazing up at something. Like the angelic choir that burst into song at the mention of Jesus, it seems angels too can be caught up in awe—as they gaze on JESUS.
In Hebrews 1:3 it says “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being”. Bright and luminous, Jesus is the focus of every angel’s gaze. If an angel-themed Christmas display can stop busy Londoners in their tracks, just imagine the moment when we see JESUS face-to-face.
