“And when they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their own city of Nazareth.” Luke 2:39
It’s the day after Christmas. I’m at my in-law’s house. I love my father-in-law and mother-in-law. They have been such a strong support to my family! Presents have been opened. Much food has been consumed.
Tomorrow, we go home to Vancouver. Tomorrow, we go back to life as “normal”. I wonder what it was like for Mary and Joseph to go back to their “normal” life of raising the Savior of humankind.
They just celebrated Jesus’ birth. They just dedicated Him to the Lord. They just experienced many people give glory to God over their new born baby.
What now? How do we go back to life as normal after celebrating the birth of the King of kings and Lord or lords?
Let me suggest that we take the example of the shepherds. After they had gone and seen the baby Jesus, it says that they “went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them” (Luke 2:20). No, we didn’t see the baby Jesus. Nor did we receive the message from the angel. But, those who know Jesus should be glorifying God by telling others about Him!
As we go back to life as “normal”: Let’s tell others about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Have a Great Week telling others about Jesus!
