From September 4th through September 14th several Connect2Christ Church Family members will be leading our devotional time. This will allow us an opportunity to learn more about our brother’s and sister’s hearts for Christ through each of their devotions.
Written by Nancy Knight:
I joined C2C Church as one of the founding members in 2010. Being a member of C2C Church is a privilege and a blessing. I am able to have a relationship with Jesus and to share His love with many others.
I feel my spiritual gift is teaching. I love teaching others about the love of Jesus, and I enjoy sharing my personal experiences with others in regard to Jesus. I also feel like I have the gift of feeling the emotions of others. I do not know if there is a name for that, but I do know that I am “in tune” with the feelings and emotions of others.
God has touched my life and continues to do so. He has brought miracles to the trials that I have faced by providing me spiritual comfort and by putting others in my life to help guide me. He has brought beauty from ashes. He has provided me with opportunities to touch the lives of others, and He has put others in my life to touch me. He has allowed me to use mistakes from my past to help those currently experiencing the same problems.
2 Peter 3:9
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance,”
This is a verse that I keep close to my heart. I have a family member that is struggling with his beliefs, and this verse gives me comfort that God will be patient with him.
I challenge you to commune with Jesus each and every day, to put your relationship with Him above all others, and to pray about your spiritual gift(s) so that you can be a blessing to others as Jesus has gifted you to be.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for this opportunity to share with others about the blessing you are to me. You are a loving, giving Father, our comforter and healer. Lord, we ask forgiveness of any sin we have committed in thought, word, and deed. Lord, I ask that each person reading this devotion realize how loving and faithful you are. Please give others insight into the gifts you have given them, so that we can all work together for your kingdom. These things I ask in your name. Amen
