The shepherds saw and believed, and they could not contain themselves. They were not men of eloquence; they simply shared what they saw and what they experienced. It was their testimony. Our testimonies of this same Jesus are no different; our testimonies simply share with others what God has done in our lives. As you pray, examine your heart. What is your testimony?

This post is part of a series of reflections that take us through the Advent season. They are intended to help us set our minds on the true meaning of Christmas. Manning Brown, director of Regular Baptist Chaplaincy, compiled these reflections for his church while he was stationed in Germany.
