December 18: Luke 2:15-18

Luke 2:15-18  (NIV)

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 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.

Reflection

“They spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child.” The shepherds became the first evangelists. They told people what they had seen and experienced. They were some of the first to share the good news of Jesus.

Who could you share Jesus with this Christmas? Who could you invite to church this Christmas?

Prayer

God, the One who is too good to keep to ourselves, give us courage to share your good news with others.
