I met Joyce. She sits near the entrance of the sanctuary. She greets almost everyone who walks in - by name. She has the most welcoming smile and the sweetest voice. She’s authentic. She’s got the right name and she lives it out.
Different people have different expectations. It is impossible to meet the expectation of every person we meet. When expectations are not met, people may get offended.
Offences are traps the devil uses to bring God’s people apart from one another.
A Bible teacher said, “Offended Christians cannot produce fruit anymore.”
Dear Father God,
I want to know Your will and live it out. It is Your will that all men and women are saved and set free. I want to stay connected to Jesus who is my Source of strength and wisdom. I want to stay connected to Your people and be a part of Your Redemptive Plan. I pray that all my brothers and sisters in Christ are connected to Your Kingdom Cause. Give us visions. Give us dreams. Yes! Thy Kingdom come! Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Amen!
God is love. God is light. We’re precious in His sight! We are standing on His side; all we need He can provide. Through faith in Christ we abide; the devil uses offences to divide. Let’s re-align and re-unite; we can be wrong but God is always right. God with us; in victory we fight; in His presence we find delight … Hallelujah! Amen!
Father God! See this little light of mine. Let it shine! Let it shine!
O let us SHINE:
S - Share the Good News
H - Help the poor
I - Intercede for the lost
N - Nurture the young
E - Encourage the weak
Forever and ever, our God reigns!
