Good morning everyone,
We are always looking at what brings us Joy but many times we fail to look in the right place! According to Psalm 67, Joy comes from spreading the Good News. 'May God be merciful and bless us. May His face shine with favor upon us. May Your ways be known throughout the earth, Your saving power among people everywhere. May the nations praise You, O God. Yes may all the nations praise You. How glad the nations will be, singing for joy, because You govern them with justice and direct the actions of the whole world. May the nations praise You, O God. Yes, may all the nations praise You. Then the earth will yield its harvests, and God, our God, will richly bless us. Yes, God will bless us, and people all over the world will fear Him.' Amazing Scripture to remind us that as a nation, we should turn from our wicked ways, and praise the One and only true God! I think God expects everyone of us to identify Him as the One that we are to tell the world about His Good News! If we don't, then the result is going to be catastrophic! I don't want to make this sound like a doom and gloom devotional, but while we still have life and breath, we should share with others what He has done for us! If you claim Him now as your Lord and Savior, He will claim you when you are done here! Simple and a matter of fact!! See God has something that comes from no other source. He has saving power and that tells me that there is still hope for a world that denys Him! The result for those who spread His Good News will bring in a bountiful harvest. For those who don't, they will fear Him! None of us know how much time we have left here on this earth, but while you are here, don't you think that it makes sense to 'spread news' about something that is beneficial for all!
Your brother in Christ,
