“Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story - those he redeemed from the hand of the foe.”  Psalm 107:2 

This month, we’ve seen Christ through our study of his birth.  What should we do?  Exactly what the shepherds did.  We should tell of what we’ve seen and heard.  We should tell his story, our stories.

Revelation 12:10-11 says: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah.  For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They triumphed over him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony.”

Do you hear that?  Salvation has come through Christ.  He has triumphed over sin and death and the devil.  Through his blood, we triumph with him, but our testimonies play a part. 

So, tell it.  Tell your testimony.  Share with someone what the Savior has done for you.  How you met him.  Why you love him.  Where you might be without him.  Tell it.  Just like the shepherds did and watch the people around you be amazed just like the people of Bethlehem were that day.

Worship: Read 1 John 4:14. Who can you testify to today?  Pray and ask God to show you someone who needs to hear your story of God’s grace. 

Family Focus: Have you ever told your children how you came to know the Lord?  Share your testimony with them today.  If your kids are believers, help them to tell their testimony.  Encourage them to keep it simple.  “Giving a testimony” is just telling someone what God has done in your life.  It’s a way we worship, acknowledging him and his work with our words.
