Devotion By Pastor Gary

Today I was connecting over FaceTime with a family that is doing school at home. The kids couldn’t wait to be on camera to get their turn to be silly in front of an audience. When I asked the oldest child if he was bummed about being stuck at home, he smiled and said, “No, I enjoy helping my younger sisters with school.” He then added to his statement, “I help my youngest sister only when she lets me.” It was so great visiting with a family who was making the best of a difficult situation. It reminded me of a passage of Scripture from 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 Always be joyful.  Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 

I pray that you may experience such joy in this time from belonging to Christ.
