To start today, ask yourself this one simple question:
When you think about the good news of Christmas, does it feel impossible to hold that good news in, or does it feel impossible to speak it out?
Now look back at the significant things you face that you identified in the “Before You Begin” section of this devotional.
When you listed out areas where God is calling you to trust Him, did you include anything about proclaiming the gospel of Jesus?
Zechariah was unable to speak because of his unbelief. But when he finally believed what the angel said—so much that he was willing to walk in line with it by naming his son John—his lips were opened.
God has said that He will return when the gospel is proclaimed in all the world. He has come to you with that message. However, for many of us, when we contemplate the significant things we want to do with our lives, proclaiming the gospel doesn’t even make the list.
The good news is that because of Christmas, even the task of sharing the gospel is not left for us to accomplish alone.
