This past week I was able to share the Gospel with around 200 students at a school in Indiana. What an awesome privilege to be God’s spokesman for the “good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.” How awesome to tell them that in spite of the fact that we are on a losing team, God loves us so much that He sent a Substitute – a Savior – so we could be on the winning team.
Basically this week I want to remind you that you have a calling just like the shepherds; to tell what you have seen and heard concerning this Savior! We are the public address announcers that are to proclaim that Christ entered the game of life, wearing a team human uniform. And we have a benefit beyond the shepherds; we know how Christ’s game of life played out. He played a perfect game and then provided the perfect sacrifice on the cross of calvary; thus being our "Savior who is Christ the Lord." He was Immanuel – God with us!
He is Immanuel – God with us! Because He didn’t just pay the sacrifice, he rose again to give us new life on a new team!
Listen, I know you all know this. Yet are you “announcing” it? Study Luke 2 this week and make it a point to tell someone about it.
