Walking in the Light of God’s People
Loving God’s People #5 – Ministering His Life and Love to Our Nearest Ones at Home and Faithful Engagement in His Body, the Church
As you fellowship with family and friends for the holidays and prepare to enter the new year, consider how you can bless your immediate family, close friends, coworkers, classmates, and even strangers with the life and love of Jesus you carry. Allow God’s Word to speak His will into your life, and ask the Holy Spirit how you can manifest His Word today.
