Endless Gifts on Monday

 20.12.10

"At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth" (Luke 1:39-40 )

After Mary heard the news from the angel she ran to Elizabeth's home; she couldn't wait; she hurried to tell her the good news. Calvin says,

"Let us therefore learn from her example. If God should give us some token of his favour, we must bear witness to him before men. Our aim should be not only to confess him with our lips - a sacrifice he rightly demands of us - but to build everyone up and to urge each other on in perfect harmony and concord, so that the whole world may echo his praises... So whenever we speak about what God has done, we should strive to show how much we depend on him alone, and how awe have comes freely from his bountiful hand." (1)

This is why I make publicly my gratitude list, I want to share,  to tell everyone about God's goodness to me, to my family, to his people; I don't deserve anything, I don't "claim promises"; I don't  "confess with my mouth" to receive His goodness. What I receive from His hand is grace, mercy, unmerited favors.

How can I live without proclaiming His goodness? I am, ABSOLUTELY dependent of God.

Let us rejoice together, let us praise Him for all that He has done, let us not forget all those little things that make up our daily journey happy; let us pray so that we might have eyes to see His hand in every circumstance, so that we may praise Him together.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
