G is for Go

Go Tell all the Nations!

                      Go Tell all the Nations!

Go. Go. Go. From now until December 25th, we’ll be on the go. Go to stores. Go to office parties and family get-togethers. Go to rehearsals. Go to Christmas programs at schools, churches, and theaters. Go ’til we drop. Then pick ourselves up and go some more.

But that’s not why I’m thankful for GO. I’m thankful for GO because Jesus said told His followers to Go and make disciples of all nations. They obeyed. And through the ages, others continued to take up the command to GO. One day, a preacher in my lifetime, obeyed the command to Go. He came to the church I attended as a child and spoke about Jesus’ saving grace. I trusted in the Lord’s name that night. Now, it’s my turn to Go and tell others about Him. It’s your turn too. Let’s not get so caught up in all the places we have to go to this month that we forget to GO and make disciples for Jesus.

 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20)

How about you? What are you thankful for that begins with the letter G?

See you in a twinkling

One thought on “G is for Go

  1. “Goodies” I am grateful for. I succumb to the ever-tempting goodies of the holidays and admit that I love their variety in tastes, textures, sizes and types. It is nice that I can choose to ‘grace’fully bow away from tables to refuse them, also.
