James 1: 25

But the person who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what they heard, but doing it- they will be blessed in what they do.

 Jeremiah 17: 7-8

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit. 

 Have you ever heard a story and wanted to share it but then forget how it even starts? It seems we sometimes do that with scriptures, sermons, or devotions we hear. In the moment we think, “I want to remember that”, “share that”, “live like that”. But then it happens. We get to a place where we can share what we have heard and we freeze up.

When we strengthen our roots, through spiritual exercises, and continue to share what we have heard in our time with God that is when we will notice that our lives are bearing fruit!

Reconcile yourself today to share the Gospel with everyone you meet!

 Strengthening God, Show me how to share what I hear in our time together, that I might bear fruit in your name. Amen.
