“I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Corinthians 1.4
Do you remember when you first heard about Jesus? Maybe it was at this time of year, a school nativity, or church service perhaps. Or maybe it was someone telling you about God and what He meant to them. Almost all of us have a journey of faith, maybe a long one, or maybe you are just starting out on it.
One thing I’ve learnt about my journey of faith is that the most significant things that have helped me on that road have been some of the people I’ve shared that journey with. A Sunday School teacher, youth leader, friends or mentor who have all been people who’s faith has inspired and challenged me and caused me to think about my own. This journey is never complete while we walk this earth and I can honestly say that some of those people have been so important to my own journey that I want to echo Paul’s words from Corinthians - and thank God for the grace that was given to them in Jesus.
Who has impacted your life this year? Who are the significant people who have challenged you in your walk with God? Or maybe simply there has been someone who has been there for you in a time of need.
Take some time today to thank God for those people who mean the most to you.
Pray for someone who has been important to you this year.
Take time to think of someone who has been important to you this year. Tell them in a Christmas card why they mean so much to you.
