When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told about this child, Luke 2:17
Interesting or unusual news is something that can spread very rapidly and most people like to hear about. People like to know what is going on, especially things behind the scenes, the unknown quiet stuff.
One of the things people like to hear about is when someone does something unusual or is just unusual and different. Once they hear something unusual, most people will talk about it to everyone else, spreading the information rapidly. With social media on the internet, it will spread around the world within seconds.
Some shepherds were told about the birth of Jesus by some angels. After going and confirming the news, they went out and told everyone about Jesus.
When a person has great news he wants everyone to know about it. He does not hide it in his heart, keeping it to himself and hidden from everyone. The greater the news, the faster one will desire to spread the news.
In today’s society, negative news is common. It is actually very difficult to find positive, good news about anything. The world thrives on bad news, though most people love to hear about something good.
Every believer has some information or news about Jesus. They have been given a revelation of who He is. They have some experience as to who Jesus is and what He can do. The greatest of this information is that Jesus can save a person.
This news is the greatest news in the history of the world. Every believer needs to be like the shepherds and go out and tell what they know about Jesus.
As the shepherds went out, they did not know much, but told what they did know. Believers need to do the same. The world needs to hear the good news.
You, as a believer, have learned some news about Jesus. It may be a lot, if you have been a believer for a long time, or it may be just a little. Either way, you have some news to tell others.
Do not hold the good news to yourself, but go out and share it as much as possible. Use every method possible to spread what you know and have experienced about Jesus. The world needs to hear about Jesus.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will tell others about Jesus; that you will be bold in talking about Jesus; and that many will believe the good news about Jesus.
