When was the last time you were so excited about something that you couldn't wait to tell someone else about it?
Christmas makes lots of people excited for lots of different reasons. What makes you excited about Christmas?
As the angel choir withdrew into heaven, the shepherds talked it over. “Let’s get over to Bethlehem as fast as we can and see for ourselves what God has revealed to us.” They left, running, and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. Seeing was believing. They told everyone they met what the angels had said about this child. All who heard the shepherds were impressed.
Luke 2: 15 - 18
The Good News of Jesus Christ is still exciting today. When you see some Christmas lights, thank God for sending Jesus to earth to be our Saviour.
Who could you share the Good News about Jesus with this Christmas time?
Dear God, thank you for sending Jesus to earth. Please help me to be as excited as the shepherds were when I tell other people about the real meaning of Christmas. Amen
When the shepherds heard the news from the angels that Jesus had been born and they could go and see him wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger, they were so excited!
They rushed to Bethlehem to see the new born King, and when they found him, they couldn't wait to spread the Good News to everyone else as well!
