And He said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” (Mark 16:15)
Have you ever received some exciting news, and just when you thought you heard the best part - someone tells you, “Wait, there’s MORE!” Christmas is like that. We tell the story of Jesus’ birth, and some of us choose to stop there. As amazing as it is to hear how the angel appeared to prepare Mary and Joseph for what was to come (in addition, all the behind the story details that the scriptures tell us when something could’ve gone wrong, but didn’t), we can’t stop there. We must be willing to tell the rest of the good news.
If you’re wondering what you can do to lift someone’s spirits or what gift would be the best one to give a family member, your best friend, the stranger sitting alone, a co-worker, the person standing behind you in line, remember to share the rest of the story... Jesus saves!
Teri and I wish you and yours a most blessed Christmas.
