"I Can't Wait To Tell You!" (Luke 2:17)

I met my wife on a blind date, May 4th, 1996. We met on a Saturday morning for brunch at 11 AM. The conversation was lively and I was filled with butterflies during the entire meeting. Finally at 3:30 PM, a waiter interrupted us and told us we would have to leave because they needed to set up for dinner. We had been talking for 4 ½ hours but it could have been for 10 minutes.  I was in a completely different world, where time was meaningless and the surroundings a blur.


After parting with her, I was elated! I called my best friend eager to share what had just happened.


“I can’t wait to tell you about it!” I exclaimed.


Good news! Who doesn’t want to share it? I certainly did, with everyone and anyone who would listen!  And after I did, they all said the same thing to me, “We can’t wait to meet her!”


And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child.

Luke 2:17 (ESV)


The first evangelists to tell the Good News of Jesus Christ were the shepherds keeping watch over their flock by night. What an experience that must have been! Angels appearing and the Glory of God illuminating their path to Bethlehem to meet their Savior! And after they met Jesus Christ, they told others. The excitement was contagious and others wanted to meet Jesus!


When we are excited over someone we love, we want everyone to share the experience. My relationship with Jesus Christ is no different. I am in love with Him and I am absolutely assured that He is in love with me. What greater confidence can I have when the God of the universe loves me? Everyone I meet should know about my love!


I can’t wait to tell you about Jesus!


Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
