We are very familiar with the scene around the manger. And we know the cast of Christmas so well.  Mary and Joseph, the wise men, the shepherds, and of course, the baby Jesus. So we tend to look at Christmas at the ground level. But what if we could take a drone’s view of the manger? Or, even higher. What if we could take an angel’s view of Christmas?

Heavenly beings played a prominent role in the Christmas story. The announcement of the Messiah’s birth was made by supernatural beings called angels. An angel visited young Mary and told her the most amazing story. That God had chosen her to give birth to the Messiah, and in a most miraculous way. An angel told a skeptical Joseph that it was all God’s plan. An angel told the priest Zacharias that the long-awaited Messiah was coming. And an angel appeared to some shepherds, frightening them, and told them that Jesus was born. The shepherds actually heard a vast choir of angels singing, “Glory to God in the highest!”

Angels were everywhere in the Christmas story. But as angels swirled above the manger, demons lurked in the shadows. Satan and his demons were there too. Long before that night in Bethlehem, a cosmic battle raged in the heavens, a battle for the gospel. Satan always the Lord’s foe and always looking to thwart God’s plan of salvation for humankind. That battle continues today.

Christmas is a beautiful story. But overhead is a raging battle between angels and demons. And raging within the human heart is a battle for the soul of people we know and love. A family member, a neighbor, a co-worker, a friend. Christmas is a beautiful story, not because of the sweet birth of a baby, but because that baby came to be the Savior of the world.
