The Daily Breath of God
Friday, June 27 2014
The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus. John 1:41,42When we find something along our journey that is true, refreshing and exciting, we want to share the news with our family and friends. There is something inside us that loves to give good news when we are not living life on ourself. It is also true that when the journey of our life has gone on for some time focused on ourself we have much more of a tendency to be critical of others, condemning and focused on lust, which is a view about things and people that is less than good. The grace of our Lord does more than save us for heaven. It refreshes our values of family, friends and community. There is a joy in being overwhelmed by grace that just has to express itself through encouragement, kindness and refreshment. On this new day in the grace of our Lord may you be refreshed again with the heart of an Andrew. There will be no condemnation there. Your joy for the day will become overwhelming and the refreshment you give to others will impact there life and values in all the right ways.
