THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

“Go Tell It to Everyone” 

Think of how  excited it is to tell someone a story of an adventure or an ordeal you’ve had, or lived through? Or how we are moved by an event or a story that we just heard from with someone else.

Think of some of the stories that you’ve heard all of your life. You know, the ones that told and retold, from  one generation to the next, the ones that seem to  resonate in such deep, meaningful ways. They can inspire us. 

In His birth to his death adventurer,  Jesus’ life is one that compels us to tell and retell our experiences with Him. The Gospel story is referred to as the “good news” and that is true,  but we, as  followers of Christ, know that it is the very best news.  It is a story that continues to resonate with us today.

The story of Jesus is the beginning of the greatest story ever told. Wise men come to hear it, Shepherds (every-day persons), are moved by it, as they run to tell everyone who will listen. The Gospel of Luke reads, “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” (Luke 2:17-18).

We can tell the impact of the story, by how the story is shared. You see, the story is still true, so we continue to share this story, as it moves us day after day. Let’s never forget that this season is about, realizing once more, telling this incredible old old story of the birth of Jesus in a fresh way –  moving us to share it with others,with the wonder and energy of those who were on the scene in those early days. 

This Christmas season, may we, find ourselves moved by the ultimate gift of Love and share the joy with others.
