Merry Christmas and Happy Advent Season.
Christmas is my favorite part of the year. Everything everywhere speaks of Jesus. Even the lights on the Christmas tree remind us that, Jesus is the Light Of The World. How the world needs to see and experience The Light!
Why couldn’t it be you who carries The Light to them?
The Bible is clear about the purpose behind the birth of Jesus
Luke 2:10 reads
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
Jesus’ Birth brings Good News and Great Joy for ALL people
After the shepherds received instructions they went to see the Babe wrapped in swaddling cloth. Let’s read and see what happens.
Luke 2:16-18 KJV
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
When they had seen it, they made known abroad. Who carried the Good News of the Light to the world? That is right, the shepherds did. They were excited about it.
People like to hear good news. My friend, you are a carrier of the Best News!
Jesus hasn’t changed, his purpose is still the same. He has come to bring Good News and Great Joy to ALL!
Our job hasn’t changed either. Just like the shepherds, we have something wonderful “to make known abroad”. One translation says, “they told everyone.” We are the good news and joy delivery system. Look out Amazon..LOL.,,🙂
What we have to deliver is life changing! The Scripture says that all who heard the shepherd’s news were “astonished”.
Who doesn’t want to see people astonished news is exciting to share. Bringing joy to others is so much fun!
Will you say, yes? Let’s do it together and watch all become astonished. See, it is you that shares The Good News of The Light with the world.
Luke 2:20 NLT
The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.
