I am so grateful for each of you who read my blogs and faithfully comment upon them. It is such an encouragement to me. Like Paul wrote to the Philippians, “I thank my God each and every time I remember you.”*
Instead of a full blog this week, here is a quote from The Valley of Vision. It typifies the riches of His blessings that we have in Christ Jesus this season and throughout the year.
“Give me the assurance that in Christ I died,
In him I rose,
In his life I live,
In his victory I triumph,
In his ascension I shall be glorified.”**
May the fullness of knowing Christ, who was born this season to live in your hearts, be made manifest to you and your loved ones.
“It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me.”
Philippians 1:7 NIV
