I am on vacation this week, so I am writing this email ahead of time. Instead of the usual recap from Sunday, I just wanted to leave you with a thought about our wonderful Heavenly Father.
He always gives his very best – he gave us his beloved Son Jesus, he has given us his Word – his promises, his warnings, his wisdom.
He knew we would be bombarded with lies too! So he gave us Holy Spirit, God in us, so that we could have everything we need for a life in Jesus – and a life in truth. He is so good.
Being such a good Father, he pours out grace and mercy on us when we approach his throne of grace. We can go there boldly in our time of need and KNOW we will be met there! (Hebrews 4:16)
So remember – it’s not how you start that matters most – it’s how you finish. Another way to think about this is something a pastor friend mentioned to his flock last week: God is less concerned with your mis-step than he is with your next step.
So let’s step boldly into this moment and this week!
Living and Loving in Jesus with you, Denis
