I pray your Thanksgiving was rich and rewarding in every way. Thank you for being with us today and being a part of this fellowship. Today's reflections are meant to offer a glimpse into our theme, "Be faithful".
Being faithful to God, through Christ, is a challenge as well as a joy. It requires discipline and consistency, but the reward is literally beyond our imagination. No one offers a better dividend in sacrifice than The All Mighty God. The Lord has done it all. Our only requirement is to humbly submit to God's will. This will lead to blessings beyond our comprehension.
Don't focus on the difficulty of faithfulness; the Holy Spirit is with you to empower you. When you read the Bible, faithfulness is reenforced. Every time we stumble, we are reminded to return to faithfulness. As the ocean always returns to the shore and the sun always rises, faithfulness is the natural instinct of the true believer. We can do this! We can be faithful to the Lord and offer every spiritual sacrifice God requires to our loved ones by giving them their due benevolent and to this world by being a witness to the kingdom of God.
I cannot say this enough. You cannot compare your faithfulness to God's reward.. It is beyond our imagination.
