Thanking God for your concern...

"I thank God, who put into the heart of Titus the same concern I have for you. For Titus not only welcomed our appeal, but he is coming to you with much enthusiasm and on his own initiative. And we are sending along with him the brother who is praised by all the churches for his service to the gospel." - 2 Corinthians 8:16-18

What a wonderful feeling to know that the same concern that Paul had for those in Corinth was passed on to Titus.  Don't you know that Paul was excited to pass along the knowlege of Christ that he had and that he had learned along the way.  However, what was even more exciting was that someone else caught that fire.  Titus had the love for God's people inside himself as well.  He began to take initiative.  This exctited Paul as he saw Titus do things to glorify God on his own, requiring little, if any prompting from Paul.

This is exciting for all of us.  I feel this when our church takes an idea and runs with it.  Let me qualify that a little.  I like it when that idea is one that works with God's will.  This has been the case with the Lottie Moon offering this year.  With a week left in the year, our church has met the initial goal.  Thank you for seeing the need to support our missionaries and the work that they do for the kingdom of God.  It blesses my heart to know that you share the same concern for the growth of God's kingdom.

Merry Christmas in the blessed name of CHRIST,

Bro. Grant
