As part of my recent study leave, I prayerfully considered what areas of focus I might emphasize for myself and our staff in 2018 as we pursue our mission of “being and making authentic followers of Jesus Christ.” Over the last few weeks, I have shared a blog for each of these four themes.
How have you seen God at work in your life? Have you stopped for a moment to give thanks? Have you shared that blessing with others so they could celebrate with you? Not in a bragging, self-centered way, but in a way that brings glory to God.
When we’re focused on our daily responsibilities and serving others with excellence, it can be easy to concentrate on the details and lose sight of the bigger picture.
Celebrating God’s blessings is very biblical! It’s the foundation of praise and worship as we exalt our great God.
In particular, how has God surprised you with His grace? This year, be even more conscious of celebrating what God is doing and thereby encourage one another and praise Him!
