Dear Mosaic Family,
Though Tanya and I were blessed with an incredible trip to Ukraine, we missed you dearly and are so glad to be back to our favorite city and to our favorite church!
The most succinct way to describe the trip would be: Spirit-filled. It was a trip for the soul. We met so many wonderful people--they ministered to us, and we got to minister to them. We met people who are rich in every way that matters, and we were enriched.
The greatest gifts in life are people you love and people who love you.
You can have a big, beautiful house, but if you live there alone, there's an ache in your soul.
You can have a fast, shiny car, but if you have no one to ride with, and no-one to visit, your passenger is sadness. The best trips are with friends. The best pictures from those trips aren't selfies.
God doesn't only create people. He also recreates people. Jesus didn't come just to make people Christians, but to make people truly human. Through the work of Jesus Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, God the Father reshapes us to be more like the greatest human being who ever lived, Jesus Christ. Jesus was God's greatest gift to us. For God so loved the world, that He gave His Son, the ultimate Gift that keeps on giving.
As we study 1 Corinthians 12:1-11, we see that God not only saves us, but gives us gifts to enrich the people in our life: wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment, words.
The greatest people use their gifts to point us to the greatest Person.
What are your spiritual gifts? Are you using them? Are you blessing others? Are you enriching others? Are you a gift that keeps on giving?
Can't wait to see you tomorrow!
