Honor And Joy In The House…
Good morning beautiful people, good morning. As I was visiting another church recently in another state, the first person that spoke to me was a woman that is following Luke 14:23. Then the master told his servant, go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.
This lady was sharing stories with me and the excitement in her voice along with eyes that were just beaming, made this girl want to listen. She had so many stories from lives changed she said, I could write a book. I chuckled and told her I could help her.
After the Pastor read the Word, lines of people began to form to be baptized. I pondered how many of the people in that line were from that one woman that was following Luke 14.
I heard the Pastor say something like this: It is an honor to baptize you in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These people were beaming too as they were waiting their turn in line. The metal baptismal was simple, nothing fancy, but it was changing lives. The energy in this place was truly amazing.
Father, thank you for grace. Thank you for your great love for us. There is nothing that we can do to earn this. You loved us enough to pay the price, the full price and nothing can be added to it. You said it is finished. John 19:28-30 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
Father, as we go out today, give us eyes to see those that need encouragement, those that need a hand up and most importantly those that need you. Amen.
Have a blessed day God’s most beautiful people. Let’s fill the house with honor and joy.
