Going home—a Christmas


Going home—a Christmas sermon

“Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, 
and hath had compassion on thee.” 
Mark 5:19

Suggested Further Reading:
 2 Kings 7:3-9

First, tell it truthfully. 
Do not tell more than you know; do not tell John Bunyan’s experience, when you ought to tell your own. 

Do not tell your mother you have felt what only Rutherford felt. Tell her no more than the truth. Tell your experience truthfully; for perhaps one single fly in the pot of ointment will spoil it, and one statement you may make which is not true may ruin it all. 
Tell the story truthfully.

In the next place, tell it very humbly. 
I have said that before. 
Do not intrude yourselves upon those who are older, and know more; but tell your story humbly; not as a preacher, not ex-cathedra, but as a friend and as a son.

Next, tell it very earnestly. 
Let them see you mean it. 
Do not talk about religion flippantly; you will do no good if you do. 

Do not make puns on texts; do not quote Scripture by way of joke: if you do, you may talk till you are dumb, you will do no good, 
if you in the least degree give them occasion to laugh by laughing at holy things yourself. 
Tell it very earnestly.

And then, tell it very devoutly.
 Do not try to tell your tale to man till you have told it first to God. When you are at home on Christmas Day, let no one see your face till God has seen it. 

Be up in the morning, wrestle with God; and if your friends are not converted, wrestle with God for them; and then you will find it easy work to wrestle with them for God. 

Seek, if you can, to get them one by one, and tell them the story. Do not be afraid; only think of the good you may possibly do.

For meditation: 

Many of us will be with unconverted friends or relatives over Christmas. May Spurgeon’s four points help each of us to speak of “the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
