Luke 2:17-18 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. (NKJV)
When the shepherds experienced Jesus, they had to tell everyone they knew what had happened and how they had seen Jesus. They could not shut up about what they had seen and heard.
The same is true for us. When we have experienced Christ in a real way, we cannot be silent about Him. We want everyone we know to experience Him as we have and we can not shut up about Him.
Who do you need to talk to about Jesus today? Go and tell them. Don’t be silent. Don’t shut up. Write down the name of somebody that you need to talk to today about faith.
Commit to inviting them to one of the Christmas services at your church so they can hear the good news of Christ and experience Him for themselves.
