Christmas Miracle #4 Participation-
By Mickey Keith on December 15, 20110 Comments2 Cor. 5: 19 "For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation." NLT
–God trusts you!
Your fourth Christmas miracle is that God has a job for you to do- This is the wonder of participation. He has chosen us to share the wonderful message with others. Let’s share our faith…Let’s share the life, love and liberty that Jesus brings!
He did not commit the Great Commission to angels, but to us! Here is the message of Christmas that we are to tell everyone, everywhere- That God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them!
This is wonderful news! NLT - Matthew 28:19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Here are some suggestions for telling others about Jesus during this Holiday Season-
First, look for the lonely- Family, friends and fun describe this Holiday for lots of folks, but for others, this season brings bad memories. Jesus came to an out-of the way stable in a small country town to poor, despised shepherds, and a poor Jewish couple to demonstrate His concern and love for the forgotten.
Second, get vocal about the Jesus of Christmas. One lady got on a crowded elevator with two cranky children in tow, and each arm filled with shopping bags. “Whoever started this Christmas stuff should be strung up”, she snapped as the elevator door closed. Then a voice from the back of the elevator said, “Don’t worry, Ma’am… He’s already been crucified.” The rest of the ride was very quiet...
Some would like to secularize the season, and push Christ out of Christmas, but He is too majestic to ignore! This is the best time of year to share your faith. Open up with people at work, and look for ways to point others to Christ this year!
