Bring Your Gifts
Greetings Harvest Church Family,
Wow! I want to apologize for not sending out an email in the last few weeks and keeping everyone in the loop. I want to thank all of you again for all your prayers. Those prayers are what truly kept me moving forward and giving me encouragement during my time out because of COVID-19.
Sunday we looked at what it means to bring our gifts. Matthew 2:10-11 states, “When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.”
We talked Sunday that most Christians today are under-joyed instead of being overjoyed. We end up allowing our circumstances dictate our mood, our mental state and give direction to our Spirit. But God has been so good and faithful even when we don't deserve it. He has placed more than just happiness in our hearts He has given to us joy, peace, hope and love. All of the most important things that this season represents.
My prayer for Sunday and continues for each of you this week that we will honor God and worship God with all of who we are, not just out of the financial side of our life but the total of who we are in Christ. Romans 12:1 reminds us again, "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God--this is your true and proper and worship."
- Sunday is Our Annual Gift Sunday to You. Make sure you pick-up your Christmas Candy and another special Harvest gift for your family.

Blessings and have a great rest of the Week,
Harvest Community Church of the Nazarene
