In many countries, Christmas provides an easy opportunity to share something of our faith with our friends and neighbours. The easiest ways are perhaps through Words - telling them why we celebrate, or inviting them to a carol service; and Works - volunteering at a homeless shelter, visiting the lonely, or singing carols in a hospital. Though as it is the time when we celebrate perhaps the greatest Wonder of all time, God become flesh, we can expect the God of miracles to still work his wonders today.
Ask God whose heart he is preparing to receive his son this Christmas.
And if you’re in a country where there are no ready-made opportunities for sharing your faith over this season, would you play your part by praying for our other churches and their Christmas services, and the guests who might come and encounter the saviour for the very first time? Thank you.
