We love to brag on the things that make us happy. We all do. I do. You do.
And so, let me ask you this question. Of all the things that we love, of all the things that have made a difference in our lives, what is the greatest? Lots of stuff have changed us for the better, but the thing that has changed us the most, the thing that makes the greatest difference in our lives is Jesus.
And my question is this. Do we brag on Jesus like we brag on these things. Listen to what happens today in Matthew 9:27-31:
And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, “See that no one knows about it.” But they went away and spread his fame through all that district.
Jesus heals some folks. And He even tells them, don’t go and tell, keep it quiet. Don’t make a big deal about it. But they can’t help it.
They have to tell others about Him. They have to tell others about the difference He has made in their lives. They have to brag on Him and the healing and life that He has brought. They have to. They can’t help themselves. The don’t have any other choice.
How about us?
Do we brag on Jesus like we brag on these other things? Do we go and tell? Do we tell of the difference that He had made? Do we share about the change He has made?
Do we brag on Jesus?
Do we go and tell?
Today, may we do that. May we tell someone today about the difference that Jesus has made in our lives.
