Letter Forty Seven
Imagine you were one of the women followers of Jesus during his three-year ministry on earth. What would it be like as you heard his teachings, walked by his side, and watched his ministry?
We have been moving around a lot which has kept me very busy. Our most recent experience was along the Sea of Galilee. I watched Jesus heal the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others. Then he miraculously fed all four thousand with only seven loaves of bread and a few fish. Before that, he delivered a Canaanite’s daughter of demons. I consider it such a privilege to serve our Master. I sing praises to our God every meal I prepare for I realize that both singing and cooking are acts of worship to our God. It has been amazing to serve God with all my heart, mind, and soul. It also has been a continuous learning experience. May I never grow indifferent toward hearing the teachings of our Lord or witnessing his miracles.
It has been over two years of traveling, watching Jesus perform miracle after miracle, and listening to hundreds of lessons about the Kingdom of God.
May I never lose the wonder of sitting at the Master’s feet.
May I never lose the compassion to care for those in need. May I never lose the humility to surrender all to our Lord. May I never lose the generosity to give all I have to follow Christ and be His hands and feet to others.
Pressing on with the Son of God,
your Big Sister
Today’s Bible Reading: Matthew 15:21-39; Mark 7:24-37; Luke 8:1-3; Colossians 3:12-17
We need to take caution that our devotional times with God do not become dull. Do not give up on daily reading His Word, praying, singing worship songs to the Lord. However, bring variety into your devotional times to keep them fresh and alive. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide and renew you each day through His Word and His presence.
We also can become numb to the needs of others. Daily ask the Lord to fill you with compassion, awareness, and boldness to help those around you. If we are not careful, we can slowly allow the trends and values of the world to creep into our own beliefs and choices of lifestyle. “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in your faith . . .” (1 Peter 5:8-9a). Colossians 3:12-17 is an excellent reminder of how to walk with Christ. Take some time to pray through this passage. May we never lose the wonder of our Master and our salvation.
