Dear ones in Christ,
One Christmas, about 40 years ago, my wife put up a little manger scene in
our living room. My daughter was about six years old and she invited a
little boy inside to see it. He asked, "Who's the kid?". The poor little
fellow was very serious. He came from a broken home and knew nothing about
Much of the world hasn't a clue about the Lord Jesus. They don't understand
His incredible awesomeness, His majesty and power... most folks are in total
darkness. The frenzy of Christmas is hitting again and there is a
pseudo-religious atmosphere mixed with Santa, reindeer, and distorted manger
scenes. People will be watching a few movies about Scrooge, and "It's A
Wonderful Life"... looking for a "good feeling" in the nostalgia. But it is
in this setting that people respond to the tract "The Greatest Story Ever
." Here, they are introduced to the Lord with an accurate account of
His birth and the prophecies that foretold about Him. These tracts are
excellent for those mailing Christmas cards during the holiday season. And
no shopper or shopkeeper can resist them. Most will thank you.
While we're walking through the beautifully decorated shops, it's all too
easy to forget that so many of those people live in spiritual prisons,
suffering pain from broken relationships, loved ones on drugs, and family
illness. After reading "The Greatest Story Ever Told" they won't ask the
question, "Who's the kid?." They will have been exposed to the truth of the
gospel. And the truth can set them free from whatever they struggle with.
That's what Jesus did for you. Let's remember to share Him this season.
Your brother in Christ,
