Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV

We are commanded to LOVE the Lord with all of our hearts and LOVE one another. When we serve with gladness, we make a difference in the lives of those who SEE the LOVE of Jesus.    

God readies us to recognize the needs of others and learn how it feels to respond when He tugs at our hearts. He uses us in mighty ways as we share our FAITH. He prepares us to speak with truth and equips us to recognize our service to Him is so much more than an obligation.

Some may question how God holds us together in challenges we face and wonder how we find PEACE in EVERY situation. We have the precious opportunity to express WHY we TRUST God’s authority to guide and provide as we follow in the footsteps of Christ and find STRENGTH in His presence. 

Every step we take to shine the light of Christ will glorify God as we honor Him by the way we choose to live our lives and draw closer to the heart of His LOVE. Oh, how we need to share the GOOD NEWS, speak about saving grace and help others find wisdom from His Word.    

God WILL prepare us to do great things and provide what we need to serve Him. We must do our part to be an answer to someone else’s prayer and remind them they are valued and loved. We will be blessed as we continue to bless the lives of others and demonstrate why we care. 

When we are rewarded with gifts of His greatness, God will nurture our souls as we share kindness; “the expression of our LOVE for Him.” The words we choose will make a difference in the lives of those who need to hear what we speak with compassion. 

We must never miss an opportunity to lead others to Christ. Many are waiting to be held by more than what the world has to offer. How can we respond to His calling and help those who long to be cradled in care? Pray to be used in beautiful ways, encourage one another and learn to lift with LOVE. 

If we reflect the LOVE of Christ, surely others will see Him as we speak truth and remain grounded in His Word. As we serve Him with gladness, God will bless us in ways we never imagined and provide JOY for a passion of purpose. 

The JOY of the Lord is our strength. Always be ready to share it!  “God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10 NIV

Dear God, Thank you for Your presence. You ready us to share the love of Jesus as we love one another. Let us never become too busy to be an answer to someone else’s prayer. We will open our eyes for the blessings You provide and welcome joy that comes from sharing kindness. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for knowing our hearts and using us in beautiful ways to glorify YOU! Amen
