On another note…
I read the following this morning from John’s blog. Thought I would re-post a part of it below:
God didn’t send an Abraham, a Joshua, an Elisha, a Moses, no He sent a baby. How crazy or better put, how like God that is, to do what would never occur to us. Yikes, a baby!
These were the angel’s words to Mary,
“You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High.”
Imagine, God’s best coming into the world as an infant. And then take several moments to consider that God has entrusted the message of His great love, this Good News of Great Joy, the message that a Savior has been born, to you and me. How crazy is that? We are commanded to bring that message to the world.
The angel, in Luke 2: 10.11, said to the shepherds,
“Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And so one of the primary reasons that we exist is to share this Message of Good News of Great Joy with a world that needs the Savior. Often, people will talk to me about how they are praying and looking to God for His will in their lives. I suggest that while that are looking to God for His will that they don’t neglect to do His will by not telling others about the Good News of Great Joy wherever they are. This message, the angel says, “will be for all the people.”
Wherever you are today, you don’t have to look far to find people who have yet to receive, in their hearts, the Christ, the Good News of Great Joy. Tell them for it is truly Good News for all people.
