Luke 1:1-3 (NIVUK)
Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eye witnesses and servants of the word. 3 With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus…
When we’re sharing our faith, we’re sharing the most precious thing we have. We can see that in the care and attention given to it by Luke, with his careful investigation and stress on giving an orderly account. It’s not that we don’t speak until we’re experts at it, perfect evangelists – then we’d never talk about Jesus. Rather we do so with honesty and love, towards our God and towards the one we’re talking too.
Thank you for the good news of the Gospel! May I have the opportunity to show someone today how precious it is to me.
