Ahhh, November! Thanksgiving coming up. We give thanks …
In prayer … In our words … But how do we SHOW God our
thanks? The great commission that Jesus proposed to His
disciples was to go into the world and preach the Gospel
to every creature. Spread the Good News! Are we
accomplishing that in our own discipleship? We proclaim,
“Share the faith,” … But do we? Do we invite and
encourage our friends and family to embrace the Spirit
of God that we share with our brothers and sisters at
the Oasis? Do we capture the Holy Spirit in our vessels,
poke a few tiny holes in the lid so it doesn’t die, but
never release the beauty of Him to others? The Word says
that we should share our faith when we rise in the
morning, when we share a meal, when we walk down the
street and when we lie down to sleep. In other words …
Every chance we get! We should be hungry to share the
Holy Spirit in us, anxiously awaiting each and every
opportunity to let His TRUTH flutter from our lips and
enliven another soul. The Holy Spirit is a FREE SPIRIT!
It’s a funny thing how the gift of the Holy Spirit
works. God gives Him to you, but unless you give Him to
others, you’ll never understand how valuable the gift
is. If we want to be truly conformed to God’s image, we
must renew our minds and get excited about releasing His
Spirit through us … And spread the Good News to every
creature we can! THEN, we will know that we are
fulfilling the purpose God has for us and every day of
the year we will be filled with sincere Thanksgiving.
