Many thanks are owed to God for the blessing of acceptance. He has welcomed us into His kingdom, as filthy as we are, but because of Jesus, we are clean and pristine, and we are accepted. With that comes a family of believers, and an instant connection to one another. It is a bond, and a love that is unlike any other. The mutual tie to Jesus makes it a love that is stronger than any blood relation, and more powerful! I don’t know if you have experience this, but I’m drawn to people who love Jesus, even though I don’t know them, or know if they are believers. I’ll ask, just to see if that’s why I like them, I’m always surprised, but not shocked, because that’s how it is when you are a believer, He brings you together in His mutual love. The next time you talk to a stranger, and feel an unusual connection, see if they are related to you through Jesus. Start this year off right by thanking God for His blessings, and for the family of believers! Happy New Year!
We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, Colossians 1:3-4
