In my church family, I have observed the work and labour of love of several ladies recently. Each lady has her own ministry gifts to share and her own style of sharing her gifts. How beautiful is the bride ~ the church ~ when she ministers in the ways God has gifted her to do so – doing her own part. There is no cause for one to envy the gift of another or the opportunity of another, for one’s own gift is the best gift – fitted for the Master’s use. What a joy when the church body works together and ministers to each other!
My Bible Reading Challenge is 89 percent completed! This week has been a “Gospel” week! Reading through the Gospel books – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John- has kept my heart nearer the Cross. I trusted Jesus Christ to be my Savior when I was nine years old. The Cross was very real to me as I realized my sins had been nailed to a Cross. As years go by, it is easy to “know” what Jesus did for me, but to let the amazing work that He began in me become an annual fact rather than a daily celebration of new life!
