make today a day of celebration
I don’t know anyone who does not enjoy receiving gifts. Many of us enjoy receiving gifts on our birthdays and for Christmas and other occasions; sometimes we even receive them for no special occasion at all.
But for the most part receiving a gift is a pleasant occasion and we often celebrate with a party and express out thanks by a card or some other way. What I wonder is how have we expressed our gratitude for the gifts we receive from the Lord? We have the gift of Jesus, His son. And when Jesus ascended to the Father’s house he “gave gifts unto men.” We have the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Gifts of the Spirit and the gift of being accepted in the brotherhood of the family of God.
These are gifts we all shared in common. I know we all appreciate the gifts we have received from above, so I would like to propose that we make today a huge party day to celebrate our gifts. In the unity of the spirit let’s declare today a thank you party day to the Lord for all his goodness to men. It’s easy to sign on spirit to spirit, just agree in your spirit that you are joining this celebration. God will know and perhape even smile on us.
