Have You Shared His Gift With Others?

 "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20

Not only did Jesus tell His disciples to do this, but he has told us this is our commission to.

Colossians 3:16 says, "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts."

Jesus has called all those who believe in Him, who live for Him, to be His hands and feet. To reach out to others and share the good news with them. The good news is how much He loves them and because of His love He died for us. He took our sins upon Himself at the cross and died in our place giving us forgiveness and eternal life with Him.

That is quite a gift. Don't you want to share that with others, to let them know Christ has a wonderful gift for them?

Growing In The Garden

"...and I will bring my people Israel back from exile.“They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit." Amos 9:14

God did create the first garden, the Garden of Eden. From everything we read, it must have been beautiful. I for one cannot begin to imagine just how beautiful. You see, I think of the prettiest garden I have seen, and know, that God's garden was prettier than it.

In Amos 9:14 God says when He brings His people back from exile they will rebuild the ruined cities and there they will live.

Along with the rebuilt cities, He wants them to plant vineyards and to create gardens.

I think one of the reasons God wants gardens created is so he can walk with us in the beauty not only of the colors and smells but because we will be in the midst of growth, not just the garden but us too.

All for us.

Our Children Can Have Peace

“Parents, pray that God may crown your home with grace and mercy.” Billy Graham

One of the things I remember is the scripture from above when I pray for my adult children, grandchildren. I look at this promise from God that He will teach my children and great will be their peace.

But I also remember that the example I set for my children is important. Children are a wonderful gift from God and we are to teach them about God so as they grow they will make good decisions.

This doesn't mean they will be perfect, on the contrary, they will probably make mistakes, just like we did growing up. But another promise I remember from God is to "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

Praying For Our Children

"May the Lord bless and protect you; may the Lord’s face radiate with joy because of you; may he be gracious to you, show you his favor, and give you his peace." Numbers 6:24-26

Every loving parent wants to protect their children~to keep them safe all their lives. That is why parents pray and ask for God to bless them and protect them.

Not a morning begins or a night ends that I do not pray for my children, their spouses, and their children. They are precious to me.

But I also know how precious my children are to God too. He was gracious to loan me these beautiful children. I am ever so grateful. I want to be sure that even though they are grown,  I still lift them up to the Lord day and night for protection and blessings.

Blessings to you and your children!
