God’s Love LEtter
A Harvest of righteousness –WEEK 40:
This Sunday in our Epistle Reading from Philippians 1:2-11, we talked about St. Paul challenging us to produce the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ. We can’t produce it on our own. It takes God working in and through us.
Paul writes, “And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord has already begun a good work within us, and will bring it to completion when Jesus returns again. Knowing that, does that make you bolder in faith and witness and energized for service to God and His Kingdom? Does it bring an ear to ear smile to your face and fill your heart and soul with peace and love for all?
It sure does!
As we read God’s Word this week, may the Holy Spirit enliven us with Christ-likeness, so that we produce the harvest of righteousness that God desires for each of us.
Look how far we’ve come in 2021. We’ve read the Old Testament Books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Ruth, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, and Habakkuk, the New Testament Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1&2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1&2 Thessalonians, 1&2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1&2 Peter, 1&2&3 John, Jude and Revelation. This week we will finish the Books of Zephaniah and Haggai.
