God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. Psalm 119:45 (NIV)
As we in the United States celebrate our freedom this month, I think of how we celebrate Christ.
I once heard that we celebrate Jesus Christ every time we gather to worship. It came to me that we celebrate God when we honor Him through our personal daily prayers and devotional times.
We honor God when we speak of Him or His Son to another.
When we extend love to those who are hurting, we share their sorrow or their grief. When we do not give up on someone who is going through tough times, we are representing and honoring God.
The Psalmist tells us he has sought out His precepts.
We honor God in another way when we give Him His tithes and our offerings. I was at a revival meeting the first time I heard a pastor say something about giving God His tithes, the statement caught me up short. I had not thought of the first 10% being His. I learned something precious at that meeting.
Can you think of other ways we celebrate Jesus? Would you like to share them with me?
