Go and Tell

From the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 11 (ESV):

When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities. Now when John heard in prison about the deeds of the Christ, he sent word byhis disciples and said to him, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?” And Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.”

Go and tell. That was Jesus' response to John's inquiry. The evidence speaks for itself. God has come into the world, and is even now working to redeem it.

What have you heard and seen that testifies to God's redeeming presence? Go and tell! Tweet about it! Update your Facebook status! Share a picture on Instagram! Blog about it! But then also share -- in person -- with your family, your friends, your small group, your colleagues. Celebrate the signs of the coming Kingdom.
