"What difference has looking made? I think we can approach the answer by thinking about the shepherds and looking through the book of Luke. Having had this overwhelming experience in the midst of their normal environment and having believed in the Savior, can we imagine one of the shepherds remarking, 'It's very nice that I've seen an angel, and it is nice I have seen the Christ, the Messiah the Jews have been waiting for for so long. It's nice that I've believed in Him (unlike some of the other people in Bethlehem) and that I'm going to be in Heaven. But really, in practice, it's not going to make any difference at all in my life.' This is inconceivable."
