Please read Isaiah 55:12-13


November is the month where we take time to give thanks for our blessings as a nation.  I believe Thanksgiving extends to the church, the family and the individual as well as the nation.  The Lord desires that we have life and that we have it abundantly!  The passage from Isaiah 55 shows us that the Lord wants to grant good to us and not the bad.  So we should be filled with joy and thanksgiving.  In response to such a generous God we should live our lives with all the fullness of life that God intended.  When we place Jesus first in our lives we are able to see the needs of others and respond in Christian love and charity.  The amazing thing is when you place the other before yourself, you actually live a richer, more fulfilling life than being self centered affords.  The world is so much bigger when it is more than just you.

In this season of thanksgiving, may we recommit to putting Jesus first in our lives.

 Yours in Christ,

  Rev. James K. Mahan
