As we head into this season celebrating the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, I am reminded that each one of us has a responsibility to share the story of our redeemer with others.
Do we take the time to talk to others and tell them what the Lord has done for them?
Do we remind them that Christmas is not just a time for getting and receiving gifts and getting together with loved ones? Do we tell them that the day is a celebration and a reminder that if it were not for the fact that God sent his only Son to be born of a virgin and to be a substitution for our sins, we would not have a Christmas?
Do we tell them that Good Friday is not just a day off from school or work. Do we remind them that this is the memorial for the day that Jesus died on a cross, taking the entire weight of God’s wrath and judgment on Himself so that we might be saved?
Do we share the fact that what is called Easter is not about bunnies and chocolate candy but is actually Resurrection Sunday, celebrated in honor of the day when Jesus rose from the dead, promising us an eternity spent in His presence?
Do we acknowledge the fact that it is only those that receive Him as Savior that will spend eternity in His presence?
Do we share His love and mercy and grace with those around us? Do we show by our lives what is expected of each of us?
If not … why not?
