The Multitude Wondered, Mary Pondered—but the shepherds went out yonder and shared the Good News of the Gospel!

And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2:20

            Do you remember when you first got saved, you wanted to tell someone? You couldn’t keep quiet! You had the joy of the Lord deep down in your heart and you had to share it? You had the joy that passes all understanding and you wanted others to know about it as well? I imagine when the shepherds saw the baby Jesus they had to tell it as well! I don’t imagine the shepherds just moseyed back to their field quietly. I imagine they were pretty excited as scripture says, “glorifying and praising God”. I don’t imagine they were whispering, “Praise God”. I imagine they were quite loud as they returned, “Hey, the Messiah is born!” Hey, our Saviour was born this day in Bethlehem!” “Hey, Praise God!”

When was the last time you opened your lips and shared the Good News of the Gospel? When was the last time someone heard you say, “Praise God!”? If it’s been a while, why not start this new week off by telling someone what Jesus has done for you!
