Do you like a good, meat-worthy, faith-building post–one that helps keep eyes on Jesus?
Several writer friends/Jesus girls kindly responded to a “popular post” question I posed recently. Many of their posts exclaim His strength, His healing, His hope.
And hope is one thing I read about this week in my own Bible time. I’ve been immersed in the Chronological Life Application Study Bible (NLT), settling among the gospels during Christmas. One thing I noticed about Jesus’ and John’s births is that our God doesn’t discriminate. And that’s hope.
He chose an older woman to birth John, a young, unmarried version for Jesus. And none of the facts relating to either pregnancy and subsequent birth made sense. Yet, in the grand scheme, the seemingly senseless facts created a perfect picture.
Our God accepts the young and the old, male and female. He refuses condemnation thanks to Jesus Christ–the hope of the world. What a gift!
It is my prayer that we enjoy Jesus not only in this Christmas season but throughout the year.
And the below links–some from 2018, others from previous years–rush to help us.
Their authors, some who shared their hearts in this Envy Round Table series last year plus a few other beautiful encouragers, keep ministry and Jesus central. And how beautiful stands a life–theirs, yours, and mine–when centered on Jesus Christ.
If I may set a challenge… Share several of these posts with friends. Grab the ones that grab you then pin ’em on Pinterest. Email or message them. Somehow, share them with the body of Christ or a “searcher.”
Bring a friend to the doors so they, too, can enter and eat of the fruit the Lord offers within.
May 2019 be our strongest year yet walking in faith. And as always, may God Almighty gather 100% of the glory.
Father, we are Yours.
