â€œWhen you enter a house, first say, â€˜Peace to this house.â€™ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you.â€ Â Â Â Â Luke 10:5-6 (NLT)
My daughter and granddaughters went caroling last night. This group has been caroling for at least 20 years. It was wonderful for Janet and her girls to reconnect with these friends and for Janet to share that good memory with her girls. They go to many shut-ins. It is wonderful to stand back and just watch the faces of those who open their doors to this group. It truly is watching the Light come to visit them.
Jesus wants me to share His Good News with everyone. Caroling is an awesome way to share the joy, the love, the very caring that comes from Godâ€™s heart! People need encouragement. They need to know that they have not been forgotten.
I hope that all of us receive Jesusâ€™ peace during this season. I hope we choose to wrap that peace around us and extend that mantle around the homes that we enter. It is Jesusâ€™ joy and peace that is the best gift that we can give to others.
The song that I am sharing today is a simple one but I hope you will take the time to listen and see the power of Godâ€™s blessings. May it become the theme song that plays in our spirits as we open our homes to others and/or visit other homes, carrying Jesusâ€™ peace.
The reason for this season is not about how many presents or how much food. It is about whether I took the opportunity given to me to be Jesusâ€™ ambassador.
Here We Come a Caroling, a traditional English carol.
