It won’t be long till Christmas!  One tradition of this season is the sending and receiving of greetings.  One site estimated that 1.6 billion greeting cards will be sent and that those cards will have a value of some two billion dollars.

 

It is important to greet one another.

 

The tradition of greeting one another has strong roots in the Christian faith.  Over 90 times the word “greet” or some form of it appears in the New Testament.  At least four times the command to “greet one another” appears and often that was to be done “with a holy kiss.”

 

Warm, heartfelt greetings go hand-in-hand with the gospel. 

 

This morning we’re going to open some “gospel greeting” cards.  They’re an intimate window into the kind of relationships that we, God’s people, are to have with one another, especially as we together labor to take the good news of the incarnate, crucified, risen, ascended, and returning Christ to a needy world.

 

Colossians 4:7-18 include a stack of these “gospel greetings.”  Let your heart be touched by the love and camaraderie they reveal as we open them this Sunday morning
