I'm going to make this quick since I know you have all got a ton to get done in the next few days.
Over the weekend Kaitlin and I had the opportunity to watch some incredibly talented Christmas singers proclaim through songs the life and story of Jesus. As professional performers their words and lifestyle proclaimed the Gospel to people in a way I could never do and to an audience I could never reach.
Watching them made me think of the people I have an opportunity to reach because of my unique position. God has made us unique and placed every one of us in a situation unlike any other so that we can reach people that others would never have the opportunity to.
In this last week of the semester, think about those you are going home to see. Whether you have a huge family waiting hundreds of miles away or an apartment just off campus, there are people in your life who desperately need to hear the Gospel (and not just from a pastor, but from a friend). Pray that God will give you opportunities to share the story of Jesus this Christmas break and pray for boldness as you return home.
'Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”' - Matthew 28:18-20
