Luke 2:17-18 “When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child. And all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.”
Christmas is about promises fulfilled. The prophets had prophesied about a savior of the world who would come and redeem His people. Well, it all began that wonderful night. Christmas reminds us-- God’s promises come true. Those shepherds marveled at the sight of the baby Jesus. But they did more than just marvel at the sight, they actually spread the word. This Christmas is a reminder that WE are to spread the Good News of Christ’s birth and its impact on us and the world. Humble shepherds telling a story of a baby’s birth amazed people long ago. Well, today we know the rest of the story. The story is amazing and it is our task to continue to spread the word just like the shepherds did so long ago. Spread the word, amaze someone this Christmas. God bless.
