They Didn't Get the Birth Announcement



There were no cards, no social media posts, no gender reveal videos, no naming contests, no baby showers or gift trees... Nothing. Not a single birth announcement from Joseph and Mary. The only ones who witnessed the birth walked on four legs. The only visitors we're told about are smelly shepherds. 

Outside of the prophecies (no doubt in question after 400-ish years of silence), the only announcement of Jesus' birth was to the shepherds outside the city. Mind you, that was an AWESOME announcement, but still... it was the only one. 

It was almost as if God expected us to tell everyone the Messiah has been born. Its almost as if the pronouncement of God's love incarnate was left to those who have witnessed and responded to that love personally to share it on a global scale...  

Outside of being polite or wishing someone a Merry Christmas, who has heard us proclaim the power of Jesus' birth? 

Its time for us to share the birth announcement!
