A Christmas Eve Devotion: The Shepherds of the Brahui of Pakistan

Did you read about the people group for today?

It is interesting that the people group for today is a group of Pakistan shepherds that reside in Kelat. Individual shepherds control up to 500 sheep. As I read about this people group today, my heart's prayer was that God would do a mighty work among these shepherds like the group of shepherds that we read about in Luke 2.

Luke 2:7-19 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. 10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 "This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." 13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased." 15 When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, "Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us." 16 So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. 17 When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.

Oh to God, that he would do a supernatural work among these shepherds in Pakistan. This Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, is a Savior that is for all people. My God use this post to send some missionaries to this unreached people group.

There is good news to be told throughout the world. . .there is a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ!
