We’re beginning the 3rd and final week of fasting, praying and seeking God during The Power of Everyone Series. During the days leading up to Nov. 23 and our Celebration Offering and the Thanksgiving Family Festival, I’ll list a scripture for you to read and consider. I’ll also share a few thoughts of my own, but my primary desire is that you ask God to reveal to you what this passage means in your life and how you should apply it as you think about what God would have you do. I would also ask that you pray and ask God to speak to the hearts of all the people in our church about this particular passage concerning what they should do. I’m pumped about the miracle I believe we’ll experience this Sunday – Nov. 23.
Bless you – Pastor BJ
Nov. 18 Acts 20:32-35
32 “Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. 33 I have not coveted anyone’s silver or gold or clothing. 34 You yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions. 35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”
If you were trying to explain the last phrase in verse 35 to a first grader or a teenager, what would you tell them? Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Do you really believe what Jesus said? Do you practice it? Nuff said.
