The last few weeks of the year are typically a hustle bustle of activities. We dart around on another high speed race toward the holidays. As we watch another year go by, it’s time to consider how we will live out the remaining days of the year.
On Thanksgiving Day, we naturally thank God for great and small gifts. We are grateful for friends and family, and for cheeseburgers and coffee. We’re in the spirit of Thanksgiving; it’s good to thank God for the gift of life and what we make of it. God has gifted us. We trust in Him. But what does it mean to follow Jesus? Jesus first calls us to ”come”. He then wants us to follow Him. Jesus wants us to go beyond our skills and resources. He will lead us to live full and expansive lives – lives that are God pleasing and impact the world. Love God, love our neighbor and encourage others
to do the same.
As we approach the season of Advent, this is the time to get to work in the life we have been given.
This is the time to grow in our faith and mature as followers of Jesus Christ. Following Jesus is a
Holy Spirit empowered process. May we be used of the Holy Spirit to direct our hearts, become truly
thankful and be a nation of grateful people.
