Sending out Christmas cards is a long time holiday tradition for many.
I really enjoy receiving pictures of family and friends every year, and reading about their year.
And when we send out our cards, I realized I have a wonderful opportunity to use our card to present the gospel.
While I can share a picture of our kiddies and how they have grown; or a small note about what we are up to-I want to make it about Him. Point those who may not know Him to the truth-just like that star did that night over Bethlehem.
So a few years back we started by adding the gospel message to our cards. My favorite was last year’s card.
On the front was the children pictures shouting with the words, “We Have Good News!”
at the bottom was the verse:
“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;” Luke 2:10
On the back was written a note about the good news of Jesus’s birth.
So now every year, instead of getting too wrapped up in the picture, I am just sure to include a message about the season.
And as I wrote about a few posts back, we are also praying over the cards that we receive.
So I encourage you to make the most of the cards that you give and receive…after all, the gift of salvation is truly the best gift anyone can receive.
