The Day After


"But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart" (Lk.2:19).

The cards and presents have been exchanged, and the Merry Christmas' have all been said. Oh, we'll leave the tree up for a few days and keep those festive lights on, but Christmas 2012 has passed. We more than likely thought of Jesus' miraculous birth for a while, and maybe even read the passages from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. December 25, 2012 has come and gone and now things will get back to normal. Maybe we saw some people at church last Sunday that we don't see very often, because Christmas can bring on that obligatory feeling about being there. For those of us who will be there almost every time the doors open, there are many of the same challenges still ahead. The church has everyday needs that cannot be met by those who only attend several times a year. Our spiritual lives need to be enhanced by the touch of fellow Christians who love the Lord enough to be a functioning part of His church. Perhaps it would be a good idea to call, write, or email that person we saw for the first time in a while last Sunday. Maybe we could express how good it was to see them and be with them, and that we would love to be with them next week. "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds" (Heb.10:24). Lets let the wonderful feeling that went with the season extend outward... "Offer hospitality to one another to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others faithfully administering God's grace in various forms" (1 Pet.4:9-10). While the glow of the season still remains, let us bring others the glow that is with us all year long... "Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.... Know that the Lord is God..... Enter his gates with thanksgiving... For the Lord is good and his love endures forever" (Psa.100)...

Have a great day... Do good... Give the glory to HIM... Love mark Phil.4:11
