Seeing the Christmas tree up in the main street of our great little town is a shocking reminder that the year has almost come and gone in the blink of an eye. Your diaries are most likely beginning to fill with ‘last one for the year’ events, Christmas parties and even plans for the Summer school holidays.
I urge you to use this time to begin to consider how you might be able to share the precious message of Jesus to friends and family. I say that because before the presents, the gift wrapping, the perilous task of finding a car park at the shops, the family lunches and dinners and photographs with Santa, Christmas is most importantly about a baby named Jesus.
Christmas is a great opportunity to show our loved ones, and our community what we are really on about.
So, let’s all prayerfully consider who we are sharing the Gospel with this Christmas. When someone asks if you’ve attended any Christmas events tell them that there is something they need to know that is much more important than an event today. Tell them about Jesus’ birth 2000 years ago.
