Do you mourn? – Isaiah 61

Do you mourn? - Isaiah 61There’s a lot of hurting going on in the world today – even in your country, your own city – your own neighborhood. Through today’s chapter, God has reminded me that He has called me (and you) to proclaim this message to our neighbors (and fellow church members):

3 To all who mourn in Israel, he will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair. For the LORD has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for his own glory.

If you’re a little short on joy this holiday season, try giving some away. The gift of Jesus Christ is one gift that only grows stronger the more you give away.

peace,
e
