“He [God] has also been unbelievably good and merciful to me as the Creator and Sustainer of my life.”
A Gospel Primer for Christians #3 by Milton Vincent
God is good! If we open our hearts we can see God’s goodness, kindness, and grace all around us. Everything we have is a gift from Him. As salt and light our responsibility to share God’s goodness with everyone. In Scripture we find people so excited about what God has done in their lives that they can’t wait to tell their friends, family, and neighbors.
“Come and See” is our theme this year. We want to encourage our friends, neighbors, co-workers, everyone to come and see the wonderful, life-changing message of Christ.
Shout for joy to God, all the earth; 2 sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! 3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. 4 All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” Selah 5 Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.
– Psalms 66:1-5 (ESV)
Yet, I fear they won’t come or see unless we as believers do so first! Do we eagerly seek out the blessed Christ? Do we see his gracious gifts and kindness? If not, how can others?
For others to come we must invite as the Scriptures say with compulsion. If they are to see we must live out the blessings in our lives.
Lord, weigh heavily on our hearts this year. Let all come and see…
