SUNDAY IN THE SON
Yesterday, places were prepared for 100 women and girls of the Pitman church of Christ as we gathered to celebrate our transformed lives in Christ. What a loving bunch of ladies! Understanding God's grace and mercy and extending it to others is no small act! Yet, I have witnessed a group of people who repeatedly understand how to love others like Jesus... "warts and all!"'
As I spoke to the gathering yesterday, I reminded them that no matter what the circumstances, "GOD IS YOUR BIGGEST FAN!" He molds us and shapes us because He wants what is best for us! The more we internalize that concept, the more we can be vessels of mercy and grace to others. Do your children know that you and GOD are their biggest fans? While teaching them God's ways, do you extend mercy and grace while being God's instrument to help shape and mold them?
The humanity in each of us needs God to keep working on us! Our theme song of the week is a song that we sing often at Pitman, "He's still working one me, to make me what I ought to be. It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars, the sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars...how loving and patient He must be...cause He's still workin' on me..."
I ask you to let God work on your heart a little bit right now! Give yourself a Mother's Day gift and watch these two videoes below...two links to two seperate videoes! Be sure an pause the playlist above before clicking the video links.
