Tuesday of Holy Week

Isaiah 4: 1-6, Psalm 71, John 13: 21-33, 36-38

We are a brief time into 2010. How blessed those of us are who believe in God and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and have received Him into our lives. God came in human form to provide for our salvation. Christ and His disciples carried the message to all so that it could be known to the ends of the earth. We know the joy, the blessing of His peace, His love. We have the assurance of His constant care if we but ask in prayer according to His will. He hears our prayers as we pray, but often His Holy Spirit is guiding us ahead of our prayers to Him. We are given Godly wisdom and strength. We can know His comfort in situations when we can find no earthly comfort.

When we have all these blessings because of our lives in Christ, we should talk about them. We, like the disciples with Christ, are to spread this light not only to encourage the disheartened, but to help bring others to receive Christ. It would be a betrayal to Him not to share His wonders, mercy, and grace. We need also not to be shy about witnessing before others we know have become Christians. It is true that depression and discouragement can strike believers; we can encourage them, as well as ourselves, as we witness.

Currently, the daily news can offer enough negatives to be knock-out blows to one’s morale. But, knowing that God is in charge and never forsakes us, His children, can be the light of optimism and, never forget, hope.

Always trust, keep faith, pray unceasingly, and love the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind.
