Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
I’m not sure where you are located, but it’s been blistering hot where I am. Anything cool and refreshing sounds wonderful. If you’ve ever worked a harvest and gotten the dust, plant fragments, and sweat up under your shirt, you know how refreshing a cool glass of water is to your parched throat and a shower is for your sticky body. But God says that when we are trustworthy messengers for each other and for him, it is even better refreshment than a cool drink on a hot tiring day. So how have you been doing with the Master’s message lately? Shared his love? Told of his grace? Demonstrated his kindness? Let’s get busy refreshing our Lord by blessing others with his Gospel!
Forgive me, heavenly Father, when I am untrustworthy with your message or ashamed of showing my allegiance to you and your Gospel. Give me wisdom to demonstrate and communicate your love, mercy, grace, and character to those around me. May my words and actions today bring you refreshment and glory! In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
