So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5: 11

As you prepare for Christmas, take time to reach out to others. Allow the love of Christ to bring joy to those who will see Him reflected in you, even in small gestures of encouragement. 

Jesus wants us to love one another. He came to teach that God is LOVE. He set an example of how we are to live our lives with a heart of compassion and awareness of those who need to know the power of His greatness. 

The Bible says, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." 

Sadly, we often become absorbed in our lives. We neglect to recognize the heart of those who need to know God is with us. We forget it takes time to nurture the love of the Savior and allow His light to be reflected in us. 

We won't always understand how God will use us to show compassion to the world, but He WILL use us! He will find the way to share kindness, when we faithfully respond to the needs of others. And He will fill us with joy; unending JOY, when the love of our compassion has been used to glorify Him. 

“May glory be given to God in the highest heaven! And may peace be given to those He is pleased with on earth!” Luke 2:14 NIRV Let us love and ENCOURAGE one another. God will help us find the way to show how much we care...

Dear God, Thank you for the love of Your faithfulness. Help us develop an encouraging heart and learn to respond to the needs of others, at Christmas and EVERY day of our lives. We will honor You with our love, as we’re used for Your great purpose. And, we will gratefully remember; when we take time to care about others; YOU will provide the way for us to bless them with the power of Your mighty love. Amen
