Baby Jesus stolen from nativity scene.
This is the story ripped from the headlines from somewhere in Florida. I found it eye catching enough that I actually clicked on it. The story was about a nativity scene that had been stolen by a grinch. I found the whole thing amusing because of all the stories that could be in print today concerning Jesus Christ, the only story found is one on a statue replica of what someone thinks happened at Christmas two thousand years ago. What if the news really followed and documented what Jesus Christ has done today around the world, perhaps the headlines would read...
Jesus delivers a man from drugs and alcohol
Jesus fills a woman with his Spirit
Jesus opens the door for a Christian to have a new job
Jesus heals a person from a terminal disease
The list could continue because God works miracles through His people everyday. We are the ambassadors (II Corinthians 5:20) of Christ and He said that we would do great things through Him.
John 5:20For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
Jesus continues to do great things through His people. Our headlines, if you will, are called testimonies and they are perhaps the most powerful witnessing tool in our outreach toolbox. Surely, God has done something for you. Please tell someone.
