“I always thank my God when I mention you in my prayers, because I hear about the love you have for all God’s holy people and the faith you have in the Lord Jesus. I pray that the faith you share may make you understand every blessing we have in Christ. I have great joy and comfort, my brother, because the love you have shown to God’s people has refreshed them.” – Philemon 4-7

Pastor Glen shook hands with and led a brother to one of our prayer partners.Debbie challenged us to pray for America. Michael looked back as I added my shout of “Amen!” to the others. The older man and wife in front of us turned to shake our hands. His vigorous hand shake and infectious smile further inspires my own.

When God’s people ‘show love’ we are refreshed.

The thought of it produces a soulful sigh.

In contrast to yesterday’s verses, surrounding yourself with those who have said “yes” and who share their faith with you, is refreshing.
