Praise the Lord for He gave us His blessings that we could become a blessing to others. We are to love others with the same love He gives us. Forgive others according to how He has forgiven us and on and on it goes. Everything that comes from God that’s for you, is to go through you to the world around you. We often ask God for some great blessings with no intention of sharing them with others. God wants to bless us and it’s up to us to have the right heart in receiving them. Look at the stuff around you, the stuff that belongs to you and then look at your heart, is all that you own yours or is it the tools the Lord has supplied to you to bless others? Christmas is the greatest revelation of this principle. God had His Son in Heaven but God so loved the world that he was willing to share His Son to meet our need. Jesus could have stayed in Heaven and left us in our sin but He shared what He had with us. He was blessed to be the Son of God and to have sinless blood and He gave His blood to redeem you and me. When you see someone in need be generous with all that the Lord has blessed you with.
Tonight @ 7 and next Friday @ 7 our choir will be singing at the Mayflower Mall. If you at around drop by and support them as they sing the songs of the Christmas season. Tomorrow Saturday there is a practice for all those involved in the Sunday School Christmas presentation which will be the main event Sunday morning. We consider this to be a highlight of the year as the children act out the Christmas story. There will be no evening service this Sunday. Next Sunday Dec. 23 regular morning service with a 6 pm evening service with singing, rejoicing, worship, and pray. On Monday Dec. 24th @10:30 we sing at Loaves and Fishes for 1 hour. All of these events are being posted on our web page. Please check it out if you have any questions or send me an email.
Continue to pray for those in need, hope to see you over the weekend, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
