Proclaiming Christ

Christmas Eve is finally here and I am so blessed to be able to have time to focus on the wonder and importance of what we celebrate in the birth of Jesus Christ and the freedom that comes from a relationship with Him. Yet in that relationship we must take an active role. As I was reading scripture this morning and looking at the account of Jesus birth and presentation at the temple I realized that every person who encounters Jesus does one thing from the shepherds to the Anna the Prophetess they all begin to tell others about the joyful news.
20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. Luke 2:20 (ESV)

28 he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said,
29 “Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; 30 for my eyes have seen your salvation 31 that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, 32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.” Luke 2:28-32 (ESV)

38 And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem. Luke 2:38 (ESV)

Today it is your turn if Jesus Christ has a place in your life and heart than it should flow out and you should share the good news of His birth with others today and every day. As born again believers we don’t put Jesus away on December 26th but proclaim his wonderful mercies anew every day. I pray that if Jesus lives in you and you have seen and experienced His peace, hope, mercy, grace and love that you will be empowered to share it with others no matter where you find yourself today. Allow God’s Holy Spirit to do a work in you as you walk in the light of His Word.

Merry Christmas and
Have a Happy New Year
Rev. Brian Mathis and Family
