Have you ever wondered how you might honor someone in a special way? Sometimes they have done us a very special favor and we wish to honor them for their kindness. Sometimes their kindness is so over powering that it is almost impossible to let them know how much you appreciate it.
That's the way it is with trying to honor God for all His goodness and blessings He passes on to us day by day, but I found a way. Would you like to know how to make God happy and know that He appreciates your efforts to do so.
John 15:7,8 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be my disciples."
These are Jesus words to us and He is telling us that when we abide in Him and He abides in us, we can ask for things that will glorify His Father, and it will be done for us. What can we ask for? Anything that will glorify God and be a blessing to others.
If we are abiding in Christ, we will be living for Him and doing His will and if He is abiding in us, He will be living His life in us doing the Father's will and of course that will glorify His name before others that they may see we serve a living God who cares and blesses us day by day.
What a world we could be living in if everyone practiced abiding in Christ day by day and letting Him abide in us and make us like Him as He dwells in us. We know we can't change the world but we can change our own lives and by doing this we can change the atmosphere around us and make our homes a little heaven on earth and bless those in our homes.
Let us honor God and glorify His name with our lives this day and make our dwelling places a little heaven on earth to glorify His name. We can do it, by His grace we can. Grandma Joan
