Many of us in the Church have had experiences that led to recommitments and new promises, and most of them fizzle out over time. Down the road, there may be another awakening, but the same cycle plays over and over. This is part of our weak human condition. I want to inspire all of us with reminders that we can be maintained in devotion to Christ until the end.
Yesterday we looked at the shepherds who paid attention to the vision of glory and announcement that Jesus the Savior had arrived. So clear and real was the message they saw and heard that they wasted no time going to Bethlehem and finding Mary, Joseph and Jesus. What were they going to do after that brief visit to the manger? Would they go back to their flocks and life be as usual?
“And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them” (Luke 2:20).
This string of events could not be forgotten, nor could these men be the same ever again. The glory they saw generated glory and praise in their hearts that had to be expressed. It was the natural result of following the path that started with the vision given them by the angel.
What would God do through each of us who have been saved by the message of the gospel if we were to “glorify and praise God for all” He has done for us? There are persons God has placed in your path that need to hear your story of Jesus. Are you going to keep it to yourself? Prepare yourself to tell them by “glorifying and praising God for all” He has done!
