In addition to thinking about the birth of Jesus and his job as Savior (don't get me wrong--very important), let's try to think about His legacy. What He did while he lived here on earth. He came to be a servant, to humble himself and show love and mercy to others. Let's see what we can do to be His hands and feet this season. I'll bet your church or community has some good outreach ministries going on that you can contribute to. I donated some canned green beans and corn and Little Debbie cakes for our food drive at church yesterday. I made up a shoebox gift for Samaritan's Purse a few weeks ago, to be sent to a child in a developing country who may not get a gift otherwise this year. It doesn't sound like much, but to the people who receive these gifts, it could mean the world to them. Until Jesus comes back, it's our job to pick up here where He left off--let's be Jesus to somebody this Christmas.
What are some ministries you are involved in right now? Let me know.
