The birth of Jesus began a series of events that changed the course of human history. The miraculous acts of Jesus show us the power and glory of God in human form. The death and resurrection of Jesus gives us salvation and hope. Our faith in God and Jesus present us with a responsibility to help others know Jesus. We cannot simply introduce others to the newborn baby lying in a manger. We need to help others know Jesus as He grew, as He performed miracles, and as a being that is alive and active in our lives today! The birth of Jesus loses meaning when we neglect the rest of His story, so while we celebrate His birth we can't forget what His life means for our lives!
The story of Jesus' coming to earth started in the manger, but we need to share the rest of His story and sacrifice with the entire world!
Thank You for the gift of Your Son. Help me to be able to spread His story, message, and love to others throughout the world. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
