Happy Sunday to you!
This holiday season, people need to experience a touch from God in their lives. Allow yourself to be a vessel of God's love. Be kind to others. Give the best that you can within your means. Forgive those who mistreat you. Speak thoughtfully and encouragingly. Commit your works to righteousness and justice. Forsake hatred and violence. Flee from wickedness and abandon evil. Make friends among those who lend themselves to good thoughts and good deeds. Choose honesty over falsehood. Feed those who are hungry. Give water to those who thirst. Your light is God given. So let it shine brightly for all to see.
This might seem like a daunting task. The truth is in your own strength you will be unable to carry out the aforementioned call. However, there is a source of power that can enable you to be a mighty influencer. In Christ, you can obtain power to be a vessel of love and righteousness in this world. If you haven't already, accept Christ as your Lord and Savior. Allow His love to overwhelm and transform you. It is through Christ that we can spread hope, love, compassion, and provision. If you need to be a more giving person, Christ will provide you with the necessary resources. If you need words of encouragement to share with the brokenhearted, Christ will give you the appropriate words to say. If you want to love more and dwell peacefully, Christ will give you a new heart and a new mind. As many of you who are ready to receive this new life, He is ready to grant you new life.
This holiday season, welcome the love of God and share it with everyone you meet.
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
