In the 15th century, most people couldn’t read and often times church services were in a language they didn’t understand. To help them learn the story of Jesus at Christmas, plays were performed on large parade-like wagons. These wagons would move from street to street performing one scene of the play after another. These plays told of Jesus’ first day on earth as well as his final instructions: to go into all the world and teach people the Good News of Jesus to everyone, everywhere.
Matthew 28:19 says, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Remember that no matter what you’re doing or who you’re visiting, we are like these plays. We are a moving stage that displays God’s life and love for everyone to see.
Think about how our lives reveal Jesus to others everywhere we go.
