Greetings Holy, Healthy and Happy People of God,
As I write this eNote to our faithful and devoted community of radical followers of Jesus Christ, I am grateful for your way of giving thanks to God. As we enter into another celebration of Thanksgiving, pause for a few moments and reflect on what you are thankful for in this season.
My thankfulness comes from God’s love for me. Last week I heard a quote, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” This quote was not from a theologian, motivational speaker, or scholar, but rather from a guitar idol by the name of Jimi Hendrix. He understood the significance of love, not as something worth pursuing, but rather from God whose love pursues us. God’s love pursues, so let’s be thankful!
Even before Jimi Hendrix offered his compelling quote, Jesus said, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” John 3:16 If we can remember God’s love saved us then we can always be thankful. This Thanksgiving I’m reminded that if we can love each other, then the power of love is evident and can overcome the love of power and this world God created can know and experience peace.
Hear the W.O.W., the Words of Wisdom,
“Because of God’s love for us we are thankful!”
Remember to pray The Lord’s Prayer every day at 12 Noon!
As always, remember, God’s will for us is good, we must do the rest!
