Kenny, a 32-year old contractor, had always had a big heart. Living in a run-down house, he spends most of his time off remodeling homes for those in need. One year, though, Kenny's friends planned a special surprise for him.
They sent him away to his sister's home for a long fall weekend. Over the next three days, they upgraded his house. Installing a new roof, floors, carpet, a furnace — even new landscaping!
And they did all this labor with great joy. Because Kenny had done so much for them.
What a beautiful illustration of our relationship with Jesus. When he saves us, we begin experiencing the abundant life promised to his followers. He then calls us to pass these blessings on to others through love and service.
This week, why not let Jesus know how much you love him? In his name, give a gift of love to someone in need. Because Christ has done so much for you.
You'll discover a joy you may have never known. A joy coming straight from the heart of the Father.
