Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the Lord said to me, ‘Now I have put my words in your mouth. v9

Yesterday we heard about Paul speaking to the church in   Thessalonica. Today we read about God speaking directly to the young boy Jeremiah, who will become Gods Prophet and mouthpiece. Passing on the story of a God who brings hope and promise into the world is not just for adults, children play a part too. I know many children who have brought their parents to faith, by their commitment to Jesus as a role model, teacher and friend. Evangelism is done by anyone who loves the Lord,  whatever age. So see the adoration in the eyes of a child as they hear and act the Christmas story again, and be inspired and moved.

Give thanks for the words of children who have moved us and continue to move us as they blossom into shining stars that point us to Jesus Amen
