Read Romans 11:36

Jesus gave all for us and gave all to us.  For us there is one God, the Father from whom all things come and for whom we live and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ through whom all things came and through whom we live.  1 Corinthians 8:6

My heart is so full of gratitude for what God has done for me thought my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I find it exciting to live life on mission reaching out to others with love and compassion building relationships to ultimately share the gospel.  I want to vie others my friendship, my time, my concern for them out of gratitude for what God has given me through Jesus Christ, a debt I can never repay.

The fact that God in His great love created each of us for Himself – for relationship and fellowship with Himself through Jesus Christ is so comforting.  He is love.  He is good.  He is Almighty and yet full of compassion and mercy and longsuffering toward us who don’t deserve His graces and mercy and yet He lavishes it on us.

Perhaps there’s someone nearby who needs desperately to know God and to hear the Good News.  We can make each day count for Him by prayerfully opening our eyes to the needs of those around us.  There may be those who have never heard the gospel and know there is hope for them to spend eternity in heaven. We can pray to recognize the opportunities He has given us to show His love and concern to a lost and dying world in our daily routines.
