Do You Hear What I Hear?

Mark 16 15.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Mark 16:15

he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

The Christmas carol “Do You Hear What I Hear?” describes how the news of the birth of Jesus might have swept across the land. From the lamb to the shepherd boy all the way to the king and everyone in between the story of the birth of the Savior, the light of the world, was being shared.  Today, we also have the same commission and more. We’re to share not only the news of the birth of Jesus Christ but also His teachings, His death, His resurrection and His second coming. Hallelujah!

Speak Up

Proverbs 31 8.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:8

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.

Speak up for the people who have no voice.  Stand up for the oppressed.  It’s our duty to help those who cannot help themselves.  We ought to go into the world and donate our time, money and resources for the poor, the destitute and the suffering.  We must be protectors of those who are unable to plead their own cause. It’s up to us to share the Gospel and demonstrate the teachings of Jesus to the people so they too may know the mercy, forgiveness and love of God.

Courage to Share Your Story

Acts 4 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 4:13

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

 

You don’t have to be an eloquent speaker to have the courage to tell people about Jesus.  All you need is the willingness to share your own story. Just tell others what God’s love, goodness, grace and mercy has done in your life.
