Merry Christmas everyone!
I pray that each of you will sense Jesus unconditional love in a very real way today and every day for the rest of your lives.
May His love motivate us to please Him in everything we do, everything we say, and to generously share ALL the blessings He has given us.
We are His stewards of these blessings and His will is that we use them to heal the broken hearted, bring hope to the weary, health to the sick, freedom for those struggling with guilt, joy to the lonely, praise to the lips of those battling with depression, strength to those are weak, faith to those concerned about the future, mercy to those who rub us wrong, inclusion for those who need a friend, acceptance of those who see things differently than we do, love for the unlovable, prayers for those who seek our harm, justice for those who are being treated unfairly, financial assistance to those who are struggling, and SO much more.
Most important is this - Through your shower of blessings, people will see Jesus living in us as we lift Him up, and claim this promise.
John 12:32 - And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
Be intentional today by lifting Jesus up in worship and by showering someone today with your divinely appointed blessings.
Then every tomorrow afterward do the same thing so you can personally grow in Christ, and help lead others to Him. Jesus return is imminent and we don't want to end up with stockpiled blessings when He does.
Praise God for His unmerited favor toward us and unending love.
