The Singularity

On this Christmas morning as I meditate on the coming of our Savior I am struck by both the singularity and the plurality of this pivotal moment in history.  
As North American evangelicals we tend to focus on the singularity of Christ.  How I must accept Jesus as my Savior and my Lord.  That it’s about my personal relationship with Jesus.  And I, as one of these evangelicals, believe this is the critical point in beginning the abundant life that Christ has promised.  But it’s not the whole story.  There’s much more to Christianity than just me, myself, and mine.  From the singularity of Amazing Grace Christ calls us to the plurality of Go tell it on the mountain

Yes, the singularity of personally knowing Him is the foundation of Christianity but we are compelled by the Spirit to quickly move from this singularity to the plurality of making Him known.
