Count down with His Grace -Day4


Count down with- His Grace -Day 4

We are blessed people in this day and age. We do not always feel like it but it is so true! We not only have churches and organizations out there to feed the hungry, house the poor but at Christmas time there are places and organizations that present “Christmas for Everyone” who is in a lower income bracket. God sees how the people of our world do not always make the right choices but in His grace He still chooses to give us grace. Okay, so its not just today, but back in the Bible Days God had to deal with people who were selfish and ignorant to His goodness to the point of choosing to follow the wrong kind of god, or men.  In His infinite wisdom he has chosen to give us gifts for doing the will of God like we read about yesterday.  the scriptures below we read about the many kinds of gifts God gives us. Each one is meant to be a verb! We are given the ability to speak out what God tells us to, or teach when He teaches us to, to lead, encourage, love one another to the best of our abilities. Sometimes we feel like there is nothing we can give, but I want you to know today that God has given you something to give.

In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So, if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you.  If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well.  If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them.  Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all! Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable.  Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. Romans 11:6-18

We are given the gift to do for others what we want done for us. We can give the gift of love, peace, joy, and yes, even grace through Jesus Christ. When we take the chance and share the love of God with others by either helping them with a project, or washing their car, or cooking a meal or two, or maybe just picking up someone who can go to the food bank to pick up their own food. A lot of people would rather feel like they were taking care of themselves. During the trip out you can share the love of Jesus with them and your testimony that can actually change a life. Amazing isn’t it?

Yesterday we talked a little about how believing in God will allow us to do the work that He has sent us to do.

Today let’s try sharing the peace of God here on earth toward God and men. If you can afford it, buy someone a meal or a cup of coffee this week and give them a smile!

In His love,
