Countdown to Christmas - Day 15

"And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds."
- Luke 2:16-18

It is our calling as a Christian to make disciples of all the nations, baptizing in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching others to observe all the things that Christ has taught us. Are we successful in doing this? Do we, like the shepherds did so long ago, make widely known the words of Jesus? Do those we share with marvel at the things  we tell them? Are we bold enough to shout His name from the mountaintops? 

Lord, let our words be Your words. Let them be effective, never returning void. Help us to reach those around us who are lost and dying in this perverse and adulterous generation. Thank You for the calling we each have, that there is something we can do for You and Your kingdom every day of our lives.
