"Do all the good you can, by all the means you can,
in all the ways
you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can,
the people you can, as long as ever you can." John Wesley
"A Favor for a Favor"
Has something ever happened (big or small) to you that was so
exciting and good that you had to share it with someone...quickly?
Recently, CLUMC was blessed to be a host church for the wonderful
traveling African Children's Choir, ASANTE (meaning "Thank You").
For many of these children, it was their first time in America.
Twenty three young people shared their culture, music, dance and
witness for the Lord Jesus Christ with such excitement that the
audience wanted part of what they "have".... Jesus! We wanted them
to do more! When we talked to them over dinner and during evening
devotions we couldn't help but feel good, smile and catch a little
Jesus excitement! That is the ASANTE children's
message.... They are willing and excited to share Jesus free gifts
to them; His life, His death, His spirit His forgiveness and eternal
life with Him!
Long ago, Jesus disciples and crowds followed Him because they knew
He was special. What a thrill just to be in the back of the crowd
listening, looking, learning and witnessing His miracles. Jesus gave
them joy and peace and they wanted more, and... Jesus gave them
more! When Jesus died, rose from the grave fully human again and
approached His disciples and others, it was then they began to
understand the free gifts Jesus gave them. Could they hold back
their excitement? No! They shared what Jesus had taught them with
everyone ...quickly! If you had been there would you have held back
So, the next time you're feeling Jesus in your life, how about
smiling and sharing a little of Jesus with someone...quickly!!
You'll be doing Jesus a favor and He'll give you a favor! Eternal
life with Him...which sounds grrr88!
