Now is the time to share the good news
Today’s devotion is based on Matthew 19:40, “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.”
As we gather in our congregations, we need to welcome each other, especially those new to our congregation. We are to get to know and support and encourage them. These acts of kindness show God’s grace. Our reward is that we have pleased God by passing on the love he has showered upon us, and we have scattered his blessings among each other. What a tremendous encouragement for us to know that the smallest act of love causes our loving Father to rejoice.
Please pray with me: Loving Father, you have embraced us with open arms into your family through baptism. Open our hearts to welcome others who are in your family, showing your love to all. Amen.
