Message from Paul Ravesteyn, Director and Founder Live Connection
It is hard to believe that the 2017 Christmas week, with it’s planning for its celebration, is upon us. But it has… and we don’t want to miss it.
It comes and goes too fast.
So let’s pause, find a quiet space in our lives and prayerfully consider how we can be thankful to God, our Creator and Savior, who has given us so much.
He is our Emmanuel who is always with us. He has given us His Spirit so that we can have the quality of relationships that make our lives so full of purpose and meaning, love and gratitude. He has taught us to love all people all of the time, to separate sin from what He has created. He has also deposited a presence of His Spirit in us that enables us to love family and friends, co-workers and neighbors as ourselves.
Our God is so Good. Let’s remember that our God does not look at the outer appearances of man but looks at the heart. And this Christmas let’s look to having a heart that is pleasing to God; loving Him and our neighbor with integrity and authenticity.
Happy Birthday Jesus. We once again dedicate our whole being to you and lay our lives at your feet this Christmas. We pray that we would be consumed by Your Spirit so that the fire of God would bring a light into the darkness of the world around us that would give Hope and Love.
I want to personally thank you for your faithful support to the ministry of Live Connection. Your money does not go to pay CEO’s and office space; housing and car expenses… even our phone costs and electricity is paid for via a mission organization. Your money goes to the grass roots of the mission field where gifted leaders are working in communities where people rarely earn two dollars a day.
Thank you so much and have a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
Director & Founder Live Connection
