Notes From the Pastor's Desk #notesfromthepastorsdesk
📖Hebrews 13:20-21 (ESV)20 Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Isn't this a beautiful benediction from the writer of Hebrews? The God of peace, who sacrificed His only Son, the Great Shepherd, whose blood has brought us into a redeemed relationship with Him, equips us with everything good to do His will. "Equip" here means to prepare, to complete, to restore. He provides all things necessary for us to carry out His divine purposes. He chooses to use and equip us as clay vessels to make known Christ, the only Hope of salvation, to lost, sinful man. What a privilege and honor we have to serve the Redeemer of man's souls. And that He doesn't leave us to figure it out on our own, that He personally prepares each of us to carry out His divine plan, speaks volumes of our purpose as Christians. Praise Him, honor Him, glorify Him with your life as He uses you to shine His greatness to the lost world. Praying that we are fulfilling our God-given purposes to further the Kingdom of God.
🙏I'm praying for you always. ❤️
