The good news is for everyone.
Jesus is born! God could have announced the birth of the Savior to anyone. But in Luke 2:8-20, we read that God didn’t choose to share Jesus’ birth with kings, government officials, or religious leaders. Rather, God sent an angel choir to announce this news to a bunch of shepherds on a hillside. The shepherds ran to find Jesus, where they worshipped him. They were so full of joy that they made sure to tell everyone what they had seen!
Bottom Line: The good news is for everyone. The message of Jesus . . . the gift of his love . . . isn’t something we can keep to ourselves. Our relationship with Jesus changes us, and everyone needs to hear about it. This week, we want kids to start thinking about how they can share the good news about Jesus. From the words they say to the life they live; they can point people to Jesus and show God’s love to others.
