Luke 2:16, So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the Baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen Him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this Child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

This week, we have been looking at the Advent season under the heading of joy. Today’s thought is to spread the Word. Whatever you do this Christmas season, be sure to spread the Word. In Luke 2, the angel of the Lord had appeared to the shepherds and said that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. Here is what Luke 2:16 says, “So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the Baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen Him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this Child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.” Did you read that? They spread the Word, and that’s really what Christmas is all about. Those of us who believe in Christ need to spread the Word. This Christmas be sure, along with giving presents, to spread the word.

 Think about it, and have a blessed day!
